Abstract
Spectral beam attenuation measurements (400-650 nm) and spectral volume scattering functions (400-550 nm; 45°, 90° and 135°) were made during cruises in May and September, 1977 in and near Monterey Bay, California. Preliminary analyses indicate that the clearest waters display the greatest spectral dependence even if the effects of pure seawater are subtracted. The shape of the volume scattering function was also markedly different in clear water. Scattering at 135° showed the largest spectral variation and attenuation displayed the least. Nonrandom variation other than that dependent on the turbidity of the water has not yet been found, but extensive statistical analyses are planned.
