Paper Abstract

A Monte Carlo method was employed to calculate scalar irradiance at 1 meter depth intervals, as a function of solar zenith angle and the ratio of scattering to absorption coefficients. Calculations were made for two angular scattering functions. Analysis yielded empirical equations by which scalar irradiance can be calculated at any depth with an error almost always less than 10%.
