Photosynthesis

  • Incubation of an enclosed phototrophic sediment, biofilm, soil, plant, algae, or phytoplankton sample in an airtight, temperature-controlled closed chamber, which is illuminated and tempered (with water jacket or incubated in a  water bath for constant temperature)
  • Introduction of a temperature sensor for temperature measurement and compensation of oxygen signals
  • Detection of initial oxygen increase (over time) and calculation of net oxygen production rates
