Abstract

Some spectral and angular dependences of optical parameters measured at different depths are presented. The submerged device ASP-15, designed for continuous monitoring of inherent optical properties of Baikal water in southern Lake Baikal near the Neutrino Telescope NT200+ at a depth of 1200 m, is described. Light field measurement and hydrooptical parameter recovery techniques are described.
