Dr. Charles H. Mazel: Introduction
My name is Dr. Charles H. Mazel and I am a Principal Research Scientist at Physical Sciences Inc., a small, private research and development firm in Andover, Massachusetts. I am also the President of NightSea LLC, a small spin-off of PSI that I run to develop specialized lights and filters so that sport and science divers can see and photograph fluorescence. A good portion of my research is involved with fluorescence in the sea --discovering what fluoresces, measuring the fluorescence properties, documenting the fluorescence with photography or video, and developing new equipment to improve the process of observing fluorescence. When I am in the office I work on data, make measurements in the laboratory, and develop new equipment to test the next time I am in the field.
