My research focused on the detailed investigation of the light field in the water column with the purpose of enhancing our understanding of the interaction between electromagnetic radiation and ocean water constituents. These constituents included: photosynthetic pigments, inorganic suspended matter, and chromophoric dissolved organic matter. The Strait of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada was chosen as the study area due to its proximity, oceanographic complexity and lack of similar studies. This research provided new scientific data on the optical oceanographic characteristics of the area under the influence of the Fraser River plume.
