We provide a theoretical framework for measuring the attenuation and scattering coefficients in a consistent manner. Using this framework, we provide a practical version of the IOP closure equation. We apply the practical IOP closure equation to measurements made at Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho, in the spring of 1992. -from Authors
