In the 5th volume in a set of six volumes of the text on hydrologic optics major emphasis is on the optical properties of the sea that govern the penetration of natural light into its depts.. The stratified light field, so prevalent in oceanography and limnology is studied and the special and interesting behavior of the light field and its attendant apparent optical properties at both small and great depths in the sea are explored in detail. Subjects treated in this volume are: models for irradiance fields; general theory of optical properties; optical properties at extreme depths; and the universal radiative transport equation. (OEIS)
