Abstract

The two-stream model expresses the vertical attenuation coefficient K and the irradiance ratio R as functions of the absorption coefficient a, the backward scattering coefficient bb, the downward and upward average cosines μ ¯ d and μ ¯ u, and the normalized reflectance coefficients of downward and upward scalar irradiance, rd and ru. While K/a and R are almost linear functions of bb/a when bb/a is small, they will approach asymptotic values, which only depend on rd, ru, μ ¯ d, and μ ¯ u when bb/a becomes large. The results agree well with oceanic observations of K and R. They also agree with theoretical results derived by other methods. Still proper testing of the model in turbid waters remains.
