Light penetration and light intensity in sandy marine sediments measured with irradiance and scalar irradiance fiber-optic microprobes

  • Published 2006


Fiber-optic microprobes for determining irradiance and scalar irradiance were used for light measurements in sandy sediments of different particle size. Intense scattering caused a maximum integral light intensity [photon scalar ~rradiance, E"(400 to 700 nm) and Eo(700 to 880 nm)] at the sediment surface ranging from 180% of incident collimated light in the… (More)
