Light Attenuation with Respect to Seagrasses in Sarasota Bay, Florida 1995

Published: January 01, 1995

A study to determine the factors contributing to water column light attenuation was conducted at the deep edges of seven seagrass beds in Sarasota Bay.  In situ and water quality data were collected biweekly and attenuation was remeasured under a variety of controlled conditions in the laboratory.  Monthly determinations of epiiphytic attenuation and special absorption were conducted.  Water column attenuation was partitioned into the fractions contributed by the water itself, color, chlorophyll, and nonchlorophyll suspended matter, and empirical regression models developed for field and laboratory attenuation.
