We apply equation 2, using the pure water spectra data of Pope & Fry 1997, for inlnad sea water spectra data of total and dissolved data, but we observe negative values of ap. after 600 nm

Is reasonable to apply eq 2 with pure water term?

can we calculate absortion coeficient from spectrophometric Absorbance spectra of sea water if we have the lenght of the cuvete?
