We analyzed the contributions of clouds, turbidity, and tides to variations in irradiance and predicted benthic primary productivity on a coastal coral reef over a period of 2 yr (2001‐2002). At 1.5 m below lowest astronomical tide (3.8-m tidal range), attenuation by suspended solids (turbidity) accounted for 74‐79% of the total annual variation in irradiance, clouds for 14‐17%, and tides for 7‐10%. With increasing depth, the contribution from turbidity to irradiance variation increased… CONTINUE READING
