A mobile flourosensor laboratory, including as main constituent a lidar flourosensor apparatus for remote measurements at water surface and ancillary instruments dedicated to local analyses, was developed for extensive bio-optical monitoring of the sea waters. Continuous remote and local measurements of Chl-a (Chlorophyll a) and CDOM (Chromophoric Dissolved Organic Matter) were performed during the XIII (1997/1998) and XV (1999/2000) marine campaigns in the South-western Ross Sea and along the Southern Ocean transects to New Zealand as part of the Italian Research Programme for Antarctica. Chl-a and CDOM flourescence maps of the investigated areas revealed the bio-optical peculiarity of coastal zones and seasonal changes encountered.
