Handheld spectrometer application for Marine Biology

Do you feel excited or joyful when seeing red? Perhaps you also agree that human psychology affected by different colors. The various colors in our life come from the light, so, did you ever wonder if animals and plants on Earth also influenced by the artificial light sources?

First, let us look at some different color of lights, below CCT of the lights are between 2000K to 7000K, these different light colors give different feelings. Do you have the same feeling?

Different Light Color Temperature Create Different Kind of Feelings

Now, let us discuss about the beautiful marine creature - coral. Before our discussion, do you ever think about why the ocean is blue? From the lower left picture provided by NASA GES DISC, we can see the blue light can transmit into the deeper ocean than other lights. Based on the conclusion from the marine researches, we can comprehend that the coral growth related to the blue light source.

Blue Light Transmit into Deeper Ocean

Mr. Eiji Myorin, a user of UPRtek MK350, is not only an expert but also a fan of sea creatures. As the picture attached below, he used MK350 to measure the LED light which was designed for aquarium corals. From those spectrum diagrams we found the light designed for corals is also biased in blue. It is holding the same view from last paragraph about the blue light transmit into deeper ocean in order to provide enough lights for sea creatures living in deep ocean.

Deep Blue Sea

Thus, it is a reasonable speculation about blue light is a suitable light for coral growth. In the end, people are applying law of nature to design the light so that coral can grow smoothly in the aquarium at home.

Spectrum Measurement: Blue Light for Reef Farming

UPRtek handheld light meter series are spectral designed spectrometers, all series include spectrum diagram to help users understand the characteristics of light. For the marine organism research enthusiasts, we recommend uSpectrum PC software, "LOG mode" (long time measurement) and "Transmit mode" to you especially, we hope this could help you have further analysis between light source and marine biology.

    The plant growth's success formula - PPFD (photosynthetic photon flux density) What is PPFD? It means how many photons hit a defined area in one second. PPFD is the unit of measure, defined by μmol/m2/s or micro-moles of photons falling on a square meter per second. Plant has various species and different categories which have different PPFD requirements. Normally, Photosynthetically available Radiation (PAR) wavelength is 400nm - 700nm. The light intensity has valuable effects on the plant due to the different wavelengths.
