Paper Abstract

THE ROLE OF LIGHT SCATTERING It is well known to every student in oceanography that the sea contains a variety of particles of different composition, shape and size. Basically the particulate material can be classified into inorganic and organic matter. The latter is found in variable proportions averaging 20 - 60% (determined from carbon x 2 = dry organic matter) of the total particle content. Most of the organic matter is detritus and the living com-ponent is normally less than 20%.
