Paper Abstract

The sea surface relief can be generated by filtering white noise using a filter derived from the known power spectrum of the sea waves. The image of the sea can then be calculated using ray-tracing techniques. In order to take into account the dynamic aspect of the sea, we have developed simple phase filters which are applied on the sea surface spectrum. This allows the simulation of a dynamic sea. The time-dependent parameters that are taken into account are the dynamic sea surface (moving waves), the moving observer, and the moving camera.
