Abstract:

Applications of a simple underwater imaging model SUIM are presented, which help to identify limiting factors in conventional underwater imaging applications, such as diver visibility. The model includes the effects of scattering caused by particles as well as turbulent flow structure. The effect of path radiance is also discussed.
