(trænzˈmɪtənsɪ)
n
(General Physics) physics a measure of the extent to which a solution transmits radiation. It is equal to the ratio of the transmittance of the solution to the transmittance of a pure solvent of the same dimensions

Where [epsilon] is the transmittancy of sea surface which equals approximately to 0.98; [[sigma].sub.SB] is the constant (Stephan-Boltsman) which equals to 5.67 x[10.sup.-8] w[m.sup.-2] [k.sup.-4]; e is vapor pressure in milibars which has been calculated for each month during 2005 in Cha-bahar Bay (Table.2) based on the data in the Meteorology organizations calendar book (2005).
