Paper Abstract

Random distortions naturally affect images taken through atmospheric turbulence or wavy water. They pose new 3D recovery problems. Distortions are caused by the volumetric field of turbulent air or the 3D shape of water waves. We show methods that recover these 3D distorting media. Moreover, it is possible to triangulate objects beyond the refracting medium. Applications include sensing and study of random refractive media in nature, and enhanced imaging including possibilities for a virtual periscope.
