Abstract
Characteristics of light scattering in sea water depend on the concentration and composition of suspended particles. There are a number of methods for solving inverse problems of determination of suspended matter composition from light scattering phase functions. In this work number and mass concentrations of total suspended matter and its specific size fractions in the waters of major currents of North Atlantic tropical region (NATR) are determined using these methods. The concentration and fractional composition of suspended matter differ significantly in the areas of upwelling and downwelling of water. All parameters is higher in the upwelling areas. The characteristics and variability of suspended matter in areas of upwelling and downwelling were found to be similar in Atlantic tropical water, Mediterranean Sea and Indian tropical water.
