In fact the data in "IALA Recommendation E-200-2 On Marine Signal Lights Part 2--Calculation, definition and notation of luminous range" [10] report the relation between extinction coefficient and moisture: extinction coefficients versus wavelength for the marine aerosol model for different relative humidity values and constant number density of particles.
However, the documentation IALA and in particular the "Recommendation E-200-2 ON Marine Signal Lights Part 2--Calculation, definition and notation of luminous range" [10] show that the luminous intensity for a distance range around 26 nautical miles is greater than [10.sup.6] Cd, in agreement with the observations made from the ship (Section 5.1).
There is a little disadvantage consisting in a decrease in the luminous intensity of about 30%, which slightly changes the theoretical range of the LED-based lamp, although marine observations show no substantial modification of the luminous range with respect to the case of incandescent lamp.
