Paper Abstract

The in water penetration of the solar light is described by the attenuation coefficient Kd. Kd depends upon (i) the solar angle, (ii) the state of the sky, and (iii) the water composition. Knowing the above parameters as well as the inherent optical properties of the atmosphere ad of the water, a radiative transfer code can be run to derive Kd at different wavelengths.
