Paper Abstract

This paper presents the concept of an effective attenuation coefficient (EAC) which considerably simplifies underwater multiple-scattering calculations. Concise expressions for the total flux through an aperture, the beam-spread function, and on-axis irradiance are derived in terms of the EAC. These expressions are compared with both Monte Carlo results and experimental data. Good agreement is obtained for distances and angles of practical interest.
