A chronological study of the measurement of the optical properties of ocean water and An atlas of the diffuse attenuation coefficient, k, of tropical Atlantic ocean waters
Stentz, Donald A.
MetadataShow full item record
This report is a chronologic study of the measurement and methods of presentation of certain optical parameters of sea water. Of particular interest is the diffuse attenuation coefficient, k, and its relationship to the Secchi depth and the temperature profile of the water column. An Atlas of the diffuse attenuation coefficient for the tropical Atlantic Ocean is presented. The report contains some conclusions regarding these relationships and methods of presentation of optical data as these apply to the ORICS program. (Author)
