A textbook for a graduate course based on the now accepted notion that the radiation that enters, or is emitted by, the ocean encounters the same basic processes of scattering and absorption as those involved in atmospheric radiation, and that there are no inherent differences between the optical properties of atmospheric and aqueous media. It emphasizes the derivation, formulation and solution of the radiative transfer equation, using examples and problems and physical interpretation. The 1999 edition was cloth bound. Annotation c.
