Abstract:

The goal of this work was to develop user-friendly, powerful radiative transfer software for research and teaching in optical oceanography. I believe that radiative transfer models are just as important a tool in optical oceanography as any instrument for measuring the optical properties of a water body. This work had the dual objectives of developing a version of my widely used HYDROLIGHT radiative transfer model that would run on personal computers PCs and then using the PC version as a core teaching tool in the University of Washingtons 1998 summer course in optical oceanography.
