The vertical attenuation of irradiance as a function of the optical properties of the water

Abstract

Average vertical attenuation coefficients, K(av), for irradiance calculated by linear regression of ln E(z) on z through the euphotic zone or from two irradiance values in a certain depth interval, are useful but somewhat arbitrary procedures for estimating these important apparent optical properties of the ocean. A more fundamental approach is to calculate… (More)
