Objectives:This course is an introduction to optical methods commonly used in marine sciences and field work. The focus concentrates on ‘Spectroscopy’, ‘Light field measurements’ and ‘Imaging techniques’. Additionally, the basic German/English vocabulary is imparted, required for scientific work and publication of results.
Course contents:Spectroscopic methods of marine parameters
- Absorption and extinction
- Elastic and inelastic scattering
- Fluorescence

Marine light-field
- Spectral composition, measuring and modelling of the submarine light-field
- Remote sensing of sea-surface colour

Imaging techniques
- Operational requirements for imaging application and objects to be imaged
- Principal axis
- Lenses and objectives, focal length
- Reproduction scale, magnification
- Aperture, depth of field, circles of confusion
- Image plane, digital line and area sensors
- Vignetting and motion blurring
