Abstract
For some applications the results of atmospheric models can be used as inputs for the computation of underwater irradiance provided that the effect of transmittance through the air-water interface can be accurately estimated. In this work the computations of refraction and transmission through the air-water interface are reviewed, the effect of a variety of atmospheric types investigated, and a simple table provided for estimation of air-water transmittance. The propagation of spectral irradiance as well as the propagation of photosynthetically active radiation is considered.
