Paper Abstract

A brief review of the optical nature of ocean water provides the basis for a discussion of the distribution of flux diverging from underwater local light sources, the propagation of highly collimated beams of light produced by incoherent sources and by lasers. Image transmission by ocean water from underwater objects irradiated by these light sources is also discussed in terms of the observable optical properties of ocean water with the intent of providing a basis for the engineering of underwater viewing devices, and photographic or television systems.
