Paper Abstract

The quality of the image of underwater objects viewed through a wavy air-water interface has been experimentally investigated for plunger-driven gravity waves and wind-driven capillary waves. Bottom targets were illuminated by short laser pulses and images captured in digital video format. Qualitative results are tabulated for loss of resolution, image distortion, and image break-up, as related to wave parameters including wave spectra.
