I am afraid something is missing in this sentence (above Fig 1):
"For theoretical calculations of phytoplankton absorption and inversion of measured absorption spectra in vivo spectra."

The unit in the weight-spesific absorption coefficient spectra plot for pigments may got mistake, which should be m2/mg instead of m2/g.

Very useful. Correctioon: The caption in Figure 1 is reversed. Bidigare et al.'s 1990 data is on the left; Bricaud et al.'s data is on the right.

The figure with in vivo spectra plotted together has a reference. That reference's main author is Bidigare and I would like to use that graph in a paper but cant find the paper that it was taken from to reference it. How was that graph obtained and it it possible for me to get a copy of whatever the source was?
