Abstract

Raman-scattering activity in clear ocean waters is documented for the visible spectrum from Monte Carlo simulations. The Raman-scattering activity has a significant effect on the upwelling irradiance value in air and on the submarine light field at the water surface across the visible spectrum. A reduction in Raman-scattering activity at 440 nm that is due to Fraunhofer lines at the Raman source wavelengths is also demonstrated. At wavelengths greater than 500 nm, Raman scattering makes a significant contribution to the in-water light field at depth.
