Spectra of Underwater Light-Field Fluctuations in the Photic Zone
Abstract:The temporal spectrum of underwater light-field fluctuations in the photic zone close to the Florida Current was measured for light seas using an irradiance meter. An experimental technique to study the biological significance of these fluctuations is suggested, and the data are then analyzed in a manner suitable for the experimental application. The relation between the resulting spectra and surface waves is briefly discussed.
