Paper Abstract

Modeled hyperspectral reflectance signatures just above the water surface are obtained from an analytical radiative transport model applicable to shallow water types. Light transport within the water body is simulated using a fast, accurate radiative transfer model that calculates the light distribution in any layered media. A realistic water surface is synthesized using empirically-based statistical models of ocean surface waves. Images are displayed as 24 bit RGB images of the water surface using selected channels. The selected channels are centered at 480, 520 and 650 nm. Hyperspectral image cubes with two spatial and a third spectral dimension are shown to allow the detection of any optically unresolved features in the two-dimensional RGB image.
