Photobiology: The Science of Life and Light
In the aquatic environment UV-B decomposes dissolved organic matter, thus
making the water more transparent and increasing penetration of ultraviolet
radiation, as well as making the organic substances more available for bacterial
In the UV range, shorter wavelengths (UV-B and UV-C) are more attenuated than
longer wavelengths (UV-A). Nevertheless, UV-B light still penetrates in clear
seawater up to 30 m (Smith et al. 1992) or more (about 50 m in the Antarctica;
