Paper Abstract

Over the past five years, numerous experimental developmental programs have been conducted for the purpose of extending the range of underwater visibility using video techniques. Although the primary objective of these studies was to extend the vision range beyond that of the unaided human eye, it was necessary for the conduct of this program to develop instrumentation and prediction techniques for determining visibility in a given water environment. This paper describes the theoretical back-ground and experimental confirmation of this instrumentation technique and describes the instrument itself in some detail.
