We have investigated the relative contribution of Brillouin scattering to the filling in of both narrow and wide Fraunhofer lines in the ocean. The spectral behavior of the filling in was studied in two ways. First we studied Fraunhofer lines of variable width, such as the 455-nm Ba line with full-width at half-maximum (FWHM) = 0.02 nm, the 486-nm H(β) line (FWHM = 0.08 nm), and the 518-nm Mg line (FWHM = 0.11 nm). We then used the 455-nm Ba line as a narrow-line model to calculate the spectral… CONTINUE READING
