Abstract

Spectral in-water measurements of downward irradiance (E d ), upward irradiance (E u ), and nadir radiance ( L u ) are sufficient to calculate the scalar irradiances E0, E0d , and E0u , the average cosines μ, μ d , and μ u , the light absorption coefficient a, the backscattering coefficient b b , and the so-called f factor that relates to R, a, and b b . The solar elevation of 42° is a special case in which μ d is independent of all variables except solar elevation. The algorithms are valid for solar elevations between 12° and 81° for horizontally stratified clear and turbid deep waters.
