Abstract : Equations and tabulated values of relevant physical parameters are presented which can be used to calculate the reflectance and emissivity of ocean water in the 1-1/2- to 15-micron range. Using double-beam spectrophotometers, the reflectance of artificial ocean water with respect to the reflectance of pure water was measured and compared with the calculated values for incidence angles of 70, 60, and 34 degrees. The agreement between the calculated and the measured values is well within the limits of experimental accuracy. (Author)
