Abstract : From observations of the depth of visibility of the white disc made chiefly in recent years, a map of the relative water transparency has been made for the northern part of the Indian Ocean and Antarctic waters. The relationship between the relative transparency and the plankton concentration is analyzed and also the connection between the relative transparency distribution and the circulation of surface waters.
