Abstract:

In this paper we compare the 3-D optical field generated by the Predictive Visibility Model PVM with the results of in situ measurements of inherent optical properties obtained during the Hamlets Cove I Experiment near the West Florida coast. Preliminary results are encouraging and show that the PVM can qualitatively predict the evolution of inherent optical properties in littoral waters.
