Paper Abstract

Preliminary results are reported for estimating the spatial profile of bioluminescence in seawater from in situ measurements of the downward and upward irradiance and scalar irradiance. The explicit estimation method is based on the two stream approximation to radiative transfer and enables an estimation of the bioluminescence with two fitted parameters that require a previous estimation of the angular shape of the volume scattering function. The implicit estimation method is an iterative approach that utilizes the conjugate gradient method. Both methods enable one to estimate the bioluminescence when the absorption coefficient is not known. A comparison of numerical results from the two methods is given.
