Abstract

Gaussian decomposition and Singular Value Decomposition combined with Non-Negative Least Squares (SVD-NNLS) method are compared and combined to estimate the concentration of 18 phytoplankton pigments (names and abbreviations are displayed in Table 2) from phytoplankton absorption spectra. Results show that both methods tend to overestimate pigment concentration. Gaussian decomposition method provides robust estimation of TChl-a, TChl-b, Chl-c1/2, PSC and PPC. The estimates of TChl-a, Fuco, Diato, $\beta$-Caro, Prasino, TChl-b, Zea, Viola and Lut from SVD-NNLS show reasonable estimation accuracy, while the other pigments are subjected to relatively large prediction errors. The estimated pigments concentrations are further exploited based on Diagnostic Pigment Analysis to derive four phytoplankton functional types, i.e. diatoms, prymnesiophytes, green algae and prokaryotes. By the application of these two methods to the particulate absorption spectra collected by underway spectrophotometry during three summer cruises in 2015 - 2017 in the Fram Strait, continuous surface phytoplankton functional types are estimated along the cruise course.
