Abstract:

The investigation of the penetration of solar radiant energy into a water mass is important in the study of the thermal regime and heat balance of bodies of water and of the photosynthesis processes occurring therein. In the Pacific Ocean in its central part, irradiance determinations were made with an underwater pyranometer. A total of 32 series of measurements were performed under different cloud cover conditions, heights of sun from 20 to 74 deg, sea states of 3-5 points, relative transparency of seawater using a white disk at 30-60 m and water color Nos. I and II on the standard scale.
