23 May 1997 In-situ analysis of water quality: spectral attenuation and fluorescence
Author Affiliations +
Hydrographic conditions are often characterized by large amounts of dissolved and particulate matter. These substances influence the optical properties of seawater, an the radiative transfer in the water column. Attenuation coefficient and fluorescence are optical parameters which depend sensitively on suspended and dissolved substances. These measurements are of interest in determining of absorbing, scattering and fluorescent matter. Two new probes have been developed for this approach: a multispectral attenuation meter and a multichannel fluorometer. Particular emphasis has been put on the long-term stability of the optical set-ups. Areas of application of these instruments are bio-optical and bio-chemical studies in estuaries and coastal zones as components of profiling probing systems or autonomous stations.
