light absorption Most of the light entering the oceans is absorbed within the first 100m of water. The depth of light penetration is governed by the amount of material in the water that absorbs and scatters light, e.g. suspended organic material. The absorption of light varies with differing wavelengths of light, blue light penetrating more deeply than red light.
