Abstract:

Real-time determination of the optical and bathymetric climate available for operation of various naval assets in the coastal zone using a mixture of AUV and airspace-borne observational assets. Remote determination of inherent optical properties and bottom characteristics will be accomplished for input and validation data for predictive visibility and primary production models e.g. see Walsh 1999 and for use in asset selection for naval operations.
