Paper Abstract

A significant amount of work has been done in the study of underwater lighting to optimize light sources for underwater photogtaphy, television, and human observation, Many different lights have been developed, but only three types are being utilized to much extent at the present time,they are; the incandescent quartz iodide light; the mercury vapor light; and the recently developed, thallium iodide light. Each of these lights have characteristics which optimize it for different underwater lighting applications.
