Estimation of the Absorption Coefficient of a Conservative Yellow Substance from Correlations between Hydrooptical Characteristics (a Version)

Abstract

A technique for estimation of the absorption coefficient of a conservative yellow substance (CYS) from correlations between hydrooptical parameters is discussed. CYS absorption in different waters is estimated; the spectral selectivity of CYS absorption is determined. The ratio of CYS to total yellow substance absorption in waters with different chlorophyll concentrations is calculated.
