EMIS - SeaWiFS Monthly mean sea surface diffuse attenuation coefficient (2km) - NB: A GIS client is required to access and use this distribution.
Water Transparency (Diffuse attenuation coefficient at 490nm, Kd490 in m-1): The diffuse attenuation coefficient Kd490 measures the light penetration in the water column at the blue-green wavelengths (ca. 490 nm). It represents a good indicator of water transparency resulting from the combined action of absorption and backscattering by the water constituents, and the structure of the surrounding light field.
