Paper Abstract

The light attenuation coefficient c((lambda) ) is a key parameter which gives information about basic optical properties of marine environment. A set of measurements of c((lambda) ) together with suspension concentration (ms), Secchi disc (z(sigma )) and CTD were done during cruises in 1988 - 1992 in Spitsbergen fiords and Franz Josef Land. Mutual relationships between measured parameters were examined. The layer of horizontal suspension transport was estimated based on vertical profiles of ms and CTD.
