What is quantum yield (Fv/Fm) on the BW680 Ballast Water Handheld Fluorometer?
Summary
Definition of Quantum Yield on BW680 Ballast Water Handheld Fluorometer
Answer
Quantum yield on the BW680 Ballast Water Handheld Fluorometer (Product # 2037700) is the ratio of Fv/Fm and estimates the health of the species in the system that photosynthesize, such as phytoplankton.
Fv/Fm = 0 is dead
Fv/Fm of approximately 0.6 is healthy
Fv/Fm <0.25 is non-viable (will not likely reproduce)
Fv/Fm >0.25 is viable (will likely reproduce)
