Abstract

This paper describes the construction of a photometer which is designed to measure narrow spectral bands of submarine daylight. The photometer is capable of making rather rapid and nearly simultaneous measurements of spectral bands of both transmitted and scattered light. The design permits operation from a boat which is not provided with special electrical equipment.
