Abstract : The objectives of the work wer to apply the previously developed absorption methods. The methodology of the Quantitative Filter Technique (QFT) was verified and published. The objectives were to utilize the methods in the study of specific problems in marine optics. In particular, the measurement of marine particulate absorption were used to enhance the understanding of the bio- optical properties of the eastern north Pacific observed during ODEX. The main focus was to evaluate the bulk inherent optical properties of the ocean and to develop indirect optical methods to partition these properties using the spectral reflectance of the ocean.
