Abstract:

A relationship between the light absorption index, K, of a medium and certain parameters of the state of optical equilibrium, permitting the calculation of K from measurements of the light field in a homogeneous medium at large depths, was established. The present study substantiates the method of determination of K from the parameters of the light field of an isotropic source in a homogeneous medium. The instruments and method of processing of the experimental data are described. Results of determination of K are given for several regions of the World Ocean.
