Abstract
A deeper understanding of radiative transfer in the ocean will require accurate measurements of inherent optical properties (IOPs) and apparent optical properties (AOPs) simultaneously or near simultaneously in the same water. Toward this goal, we have instrumented a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) with state-of-the-art instruments that measure the beam attenuation, volume absorption, backscattering coefficients, vector and scalar irradiances, temperature, salinity, and undisturbed particle-size distributions and concentrations. The ROV and its instruments are described and data are presented from deployments at Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho; Tongue-of-the-Ocean, Bahamas; and Monterey Bay, California.
