At supersaturating light intensities, photosynthesis was less inhibited by flicker light than by constant light.

Due to the lens effect, light intensity in shallow-water environments sometimes reaches more than 9,000 mmol photons m 2 sec 1, corresponding to 300 to 500% of the surface light intensity (Schubert et al. 2001, in shallow estuary).
