Paper Abstract

A short review of the present-day state of the problems in retrieving the microphysical properties of oceanic particles from light scattering properties. It is found that the best procedure for determining particle size distributions uses the small angle method in determining the large particles and a fitting method to determine medium and small particles. Comparing the size distribution determined found using the optical method to the geological method finds similar numbers of large particles, but the optical method finds many more small particles than the geological.
