Abstract:

Techniques for the determination of the submerged reflectance of painted surfaces are described. Absolute reflectance values were obtained of sample surfaces immersed in a large tank. The values were then transferred to laboratory instruments as calibration standards. The several measurement procedures and equipments are described. The technique for determining submerged reflectance from the measurement of a wetted surface is presented and experimental validation given.
