Abstract : Light propagation data from the four seasons of the year taken in the Florida Everglades at night during 1964 and 1965 are presented and analyzed. These show the attenuation of blue, green, red, and infrared light under tropical and subtropical conditions. Some concurrent polar nepholometer measurements of the light scattered from particles in a small volume of air as a function of the angle of incidence and reflection are included. The geographical site, equipment, and methods of data collection also are described. (Author)
