Abstract:

The sub-discipline of ocean optics is an exciting and equally challenging field, as the scattering and absorption agents in the water, and the water itself, severely limits that range of optical reach when compared to the in-air systems. Optical methods provide the only means to penetrate the ocean from space, in this section, we examine the latest development in underwater imaging, ocean color remote sensing and lidar, through measurements and models.
