Paper Abstract

A study involving polarization phenonema conducted at Lake Winni-pesaukee, New Hampshire, during the summer of 1965 caused one of the authors to think of the possible application of polarization techniques to underwater visibility range and contrast improvement. As a result, a series of tests was conducted at the U. S. Naval Ordnance Test Station (NOTS) Pasadena Annex Morris Dam facility in April 1966.
