Paper Abstract

In this introductory survey of optical oceanography we first present the fundamental inherent and apparent optical properties of natural waters. Relationships between these inherent and apparent optical properties, as related through the radiative transfer equation, are then presented. Following the first three theoretical sections brief discussions describing the application of ocean optics to geophysics, biological oceanography, and ocean remote sensing are then presented. Authorship for each section is indicated by initials after the section heading.
