Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to utilize Wells' results to compute the medium decay function, D(Γ), from which is easily determined the germane MTF for a stated range, R) using both the value of b computed with the above mentioned relationships and experimentally determined values of b. The resulting decay function expressions will be compared to provide a measure of the errors introduced by using the various estimation methods. Finally, comments will be made on which model appears to provide the most accurate estimation of b for different water mass types.
