Water clarity is a key parameter of coastal ecology, as well as being important to some near-shore Naval operations. The clarity of the water column depends upon the depth-dependent distribution of the inherent optical properties and the geometric structure of the light field an apparent optical property. Our long-term goal is to develop the remote sensing techniques, data analysis, and modeling capabilities to nowcast and forecast the 3-dimensional Inherent and Apparent Optical Properties IOPs and AOPs of the near-shore coastal environment.
