This volume offers a treatment of radiative transfer theory in a format tailored to the specific needs of optical oceanography, with applications to real problems. It develops the basic theory and reviews the current literature. Numerical methods for solving radiative transfer equations are then detailed, with equations describing transpectral effects, internal surfaces, and surface effects. Equations governing the propagation of visible light across air-water surfaces and within water bodies are also explained. The book illustrates the nature of underwater light fields and their dependence on water optical properties and external environmental conditions and also summarizes the optical properties of natural waters in forms suitable for input into radiative transfer predictive models.
