Paper Abstract

During the international SPASIBA expedition (August - September 1991) optical measurements in Laptev Sea were made at few sections from Lena River delta to open sea (42 stations). Mainly vertical profiles of beam attenuation coefficient C(z) were measured using beam transmissometer. Statistical analysis showed that beam attenuation coefficient closely correlated with suspended matter concentration (r equals 0.96). So results of optical measurements can be interpreted in terms of suspended matter concentration.
