LIGHT & HEAT. IN INLAND WATERS. Light spectrum at the top and bottom of the atmosphere. Measurable Properties of Light. Intensity Quality Both are dependent on absorption and reflection by the atmosphere. Fates of light in water. Shading of low order streams.
IN INLAND WATERS
Both are dependent on absorption and reflection by the atmosphere
ν (nu) = extinction coefficient of light through water.
v = >>10-150
where S = storage rate of heat in the lake
Rn = net radiation
E = evaporation
H = sensible heat transfer, conduction
Q = advective heat transfers due to water
inflows and outflows
S = Rn – E – H – Q
