Paper Abstract

Remote sensing of water properties using passive, optical systems has been limited by the ability to model underwater radiative transfer for anything other than homogeneous waters. An approximate model, the Singly-scattered Irradiance (SSI) model, has been developed which is designed to describe optically shallow, stratified waters and for which there exists a general analytic solution. Experimental evidence is presented which partially substantiates the adequacy of the approximation of single-scattering for irradiance. Although limited in scope, these preliminary experiments suggest that the SSI model will yield results which are adequate for the purpose of remote sensing of water properties.
