Abstract : A study was made to relate certain optical properties with other observed properties of water sampled in southern Monterey Bay, California. Dominant wavelength, percent purity, and visual efficiency were determined for 65 nearshore water samples using a one-meter sample cell in a modified Beckman DU-2 spectrophotometer. Measurements made at the sample locations included salinity, surface temperature, phosphate, coliform count, oxygen, and particle size distribution. (Author)
