Paper Abstract

In turbid coastal waters the fluorescence by yellow substance and by chlorophyll affect on the light fields. It would be quit important to take into account the effects of incoherent light scattering more precisely. In this paper, the equation of transfer is written in vector form, in which the spectral matrix of incoherent light scattering is included. The spectral matrices of the reflectance and of the transmittance for a plane-parallel layer are introduced. An analytical solution of the equation for a single and two-fold scattering is written. To get numerical solution a matrix operator method based on the “interaction” principle is proposed. The method is intended for numerical simulation of the light fields in the vertically non-uniform seas illuminated by daylight.
