International audience; Atmospheric and in-water solar radiation, including UVR-B, UVR-A and PAR, as well as chromophoric dissolved organic matter absorption [a CDOM (k)] in surface waters were monthly measured from November 2007 to December 2008 at a coastal station in the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea (Bay of Marseilles, France). Our results showed that the UVR-B/ UVR–A ratio followed the same trend in the atmosphere and at 2 m depth in the water (P < 0.0001) with an increase (eight-fold higher) during summer. The low diffuse attenua-tion coefficients for downward irradiance [K d (k)] of UVR-B, UVR-A and PAR indicated that the waters were highly transparent t...
