Compensation point

Just been going through my revision notes for the January exam for OCR Biology and realised that I really don't understand what the 'compensation point' in relation to photosynthesis.

Can anyone explain it to me?

I think that it is the light intensity where the rate of photosynthesis matches the rate of respitation.
