Puts the light intensity found at a certain part of the dive spot (e.g. the habitat of a sessile animal) into brackets. Allowed values are: undetermined, sunny, half-shadow, shadow, no-light (e.g. in a cave). As an attribute it is possible to specify the exact, measured value of the light intensity in Lux, given as a real number.
