The purpose of the lexicon below is to help provide a ready reference to the common terms used daily here at Biospherical Instruments. Note that often these terms are used in discussions about optics in aquatic research, so you may perceive a specialized focus to terms rather than a broad technical definition.

Those interested in pursuing The Truth may consult a number of excellent references, such as Curt Mobley's Light and Water (1994), Academic Press, New York; J.T.O. Kirk's Light and Photosynthesis in Aquatic Ecosystems, 2nd ed. (1994), University Press, Cambridge; the Optical Society of America's Handbook of Optics; and the AMS Glossary of Meteorology
