Summary: 
Depiction of the pathways for solar radiation entering the ocean from the outer atmosphere. Radiation interacts with atmosphere components such as clouds, dust and specific gases such as carbon dioxide and water vapour. Light is reflected away from the surface as some crosses the surface interface of the ocean. Once it has entered the water, it is scattered and absorbed by water and components such as suspended sediments. Beer’s Law relates the passage of light through the water column (z, metres) to the amount of suspended material in the water column. Io, intensity of light at the surface, while Id is the intensity at depth, d. The attenuation coefficient, k, is a measure of the extent to which light is absorbed and scattered by the water column and its internal constituents (Figure: D. Kleine and O. Hoegh-Guldberg).
