Paper Abstract

Both scattering and attenuation effects severely limit the distance over which under-water viewing is practicable. Within limits, the attenuation effects can be overcome by increasing light source intensity and receiver sensitivity. Scattering effects cannot be treated in such a direct manner. The following is a discussion of two systems which show promise of overcoming the effects of the backscattered illumination.
