About this book

Covers the significant advances made in the field of optical oceanography over the last decade. Valuable reference for all involved in physical and biological oceanography, biology, geophysics, limnology, and atmospherical optics.

"A good introduction to ocean optics and ocean color research."--Pure & Applied Geophysics


1. Modelling and simulating radiative transfer in the ocean; 2. The relationship between the inherent and the apparent optical properties of surface waters and its dependence on the shape of the volume scattering function; 3. Optical closure: from theory to measurement; 4. Interrelationships between light and phytoplankton in the sea; 5. Optics from the single cell to the mesoscale; 6. Measurements of phytoplankton absorption other than per unit of chlorophyll a; 7. A history of early optical oceanographic instrument design in Scandinavia; 8. Why is the measurement of fluorescence important to the study of biological oceanography?; 9. Light absorption, fluorescence, and photosynthesis: Skeletonema costatum and field measurements; 10. Capabilities and merits of long-term bio-optical moorings; 11. Polarization of light in the ocean; 12. Raman scattering and optical properties of pure water; 13. Optical effects of large particles; References
