An instrument possessing very high spectral resolution has been developed to directly measure the Fraunhofer line filling in the upwelling and downwelling irradiances as a function of depth. Measurements made in Monterey Bay show line filling similar to that predicted on theoretical grounds when Raman scattering by water itself is assumed to be the only inelastic process; however, the lines are filled more rapidly with depth than predicted. We believe the more rapid filling results from solar-induced fluorescence of dissolved organic matter. -from Authors
