23 May 2014 Underwater imaging of polarized targets
Author Affiliations +
The analysis of images of several underwater targets that exhibits different polarization properties measured using an underwater camera in various water conditions is presented. The measurements are compared with an imaging model which combines vector radiative transfer simulations by the RayXP program for the propagation of light in the atmosphere-interface-ocean system and the Monte Carlo simulations for the near horizontal imaging in the water. Modeling includes analysis of the vector point spread function (PSF) from the target and the contribution of the veiling light between the target and the camera.
