The latest model for light scattering by pure seawater was used to investigate the anomalous behavior of pure water. The results showed that water exhibits a minimum scattering at 24.6 °C, as compared to the previously reported values of minimum scattering at 22 °C or maximum scattering at 15 °C. The temperature corresponding to the minimum scattering also increases with the salinity, reaching 27.5 °C for S = 40 psu. View Full-Text
