Abstract : We have obtained an exact, one-dimensional solution to the equations of radiative transfer for chlorophyll fluorescence from an infinitely deep ocean with a uniform distribution of fluorescing bodies. We have also found that the general solution could be reduced to a very simple expression for the case where absorption dominated over scattering. This allowed us to establish an upper bound on the difference in reflectivities for a very high chlorophyll concentration. (Author)
