Abstract:

My long-term goals are to experimentally determine the interrelationships and variability of optical properties in the ocean and atmosphere. I have been concentrating on aspects of scattering and reflectance, both inelastic and elastic, and measurements of the radiance distribution in the ocean and atmosphere. These measurements can be combined to test and improve radiative transfer models, which are used to predict image and light transmission in the ocean.
