Abstract : Our long term goal is to develop a tested model of optical properties in the surf zone and adjacent nearshore ocean, including the influence of suspended sediment, bubble population and surface foam, to assess how optical properties are related to short term events such as individual breaking wave crests, and to determine how wave-driven surf zone circulation influences spatial distribution of optical properties just offshore of breaking through seaward transport of fine sediment, small persistent bubbles and surface foam.
