Abstract:

The broad goal of this research is to address the problem of understanding the propagation of light in the ocean and its ramifications for underwater imaging. In particular, we are interested in developing inversion algorithms for determining the total absorption and scattering coefficients and the small angle values of the volume scattering function from simple optical experiments such as the propagation of collimated light beams over distances of several total attenuation lengths. This is particularly important in understanding the limitations of current computer models which predict the propagation of light underwater. Ocean optics, Underwater imaging, Optical tomography.
