The present work aims to develop the water quality index for the optically complex turbid coastal waters of Bay of Bengal based on the optical properties of water column. In this study, a new trophic index was derived as a function of the ratio of vertical diffuse attenuation coefficient (Kd) at 531 nm to 490 nm, expressed as Kd(531/490), to obtain the… CONTINUE READING
