Abstract : A 5-week summer graduate-level exercise in Optical Oceanography at the University of Washington's Friday Harbor Laboratories (FHL) was offered in summer 1995. The focus of this course was radiative transfer in the ocean with an emphasis on Case II waters. An underlying philosophy of the exercise was that a mechanistic understanding of radiative transfer in the ocean must include biological terms. The exercise was an intensive, hands-on experience for 15 students plus faculty, combining theory, measurement, and modeling in the unique coastal and estuarine settings of the San Juan Islands and Strait of Juan de Fuca. The course was a cooperative effort of Tennessee State University and University of Washington.
