An Instrument for In Situ Measuring the Volume Scattering Function of Water: Design, Calibration and Primary Experiments


The optical volume scattering function (VSF) of seawater is a fundamental property used in the calculation of radiative transfer for applications in the study of the upper-ocean heat balance, the photosynthetic productivity of the ocean, and the chemical transformation of photoreactive compounds. A new instrument to simultaneously measure the VSF in seven… (More)
