Abstract:

We have analyzed the vertical intensity profiles of the plankton bioluminescence and oxygen concentration in the Black Sea and in the Pacific Ocean nearby the east coast of America. Location of the depth maximum of the plankton bioluminescence is established between the isooxygens of 0.35 and 0.20 ml/l. At oxygen concentration in water lower than 0.10-0.20 ml/l, the plankton bioluminescence was not detected.
