Paper Abstract

We consider the case of one- and two-dimensional sinusoidal elevations of the water surface with wavelengths in the interval (0.03-3)d where d is the diameter of a circular bottom object which is being imaged. Trends of image distortion and degradation are identified. A criterion for acceptable level of image distortion, based on wavelength/object size ratio and degree of stretching or shrinking of image envelope, is derived and checked against numerically generated images.
