Paper Abstract

Scattering of light in the ocean may make the application of structured light ranging methods difficult. An analysis is presented which approximates the effect of backscatter on the signal-to-noise ratio at the camera. Theory as well as laboratory observations indicate that a single scanning light stripe can be used to avoid a substancial part of the backscatter.
