Description:
Abstract:
Surface incident irradiance (Es) is a measure of the light reaching the ocean surface. This data set was measured during the MUSE experiment from MBARI's M2 mooring located outside the mouth of Monterey Bay along the central California coast.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.
