Abstract
The predictive effects of Raman scattering on the inherent optical characteristics of aquatic water masses raises questions concerning our ability to estimate how light energy is budgeted. Using values for the optical cross-section of water and biogenic substances, we estimate the relative contribution of fluorescence from the microbiological component and Raman scattering to the underwater radiance field. We conclude that in oligotrophic conditions, the contribution by fluorescence or Raman scatter is equal , while in eutrophic waters fluorescence overwhelms Raman scattering.
