Transparency

Transparency is a measure of water clarity. It can be used as a surrogate for turbidity and is a function of both the color and suspended particles in the water. Dissolved materials can also affect transparency by changing the color of water. For example, dissolved organic material can give a brownish, tea-like color to water. Suspended material, like sediment or algae, in the water column also reduces transparency.
