Lidar Methods for Measurement of Modulation Transfer Function of Water ‎Layers ‎

Dolin L.S.

We develop algorithms for retrieval of the water layer modulation transfer function (MTF) from the radi-‎ance of backscattered laser pulse. A lidar diagram is developed for remote measuring of the MTF. The ‎water optical properties are then retrieved from measured MTF. We also propose a laser imaging system ‎for sea bottom observation which corrects image distortion caused by light scattering in the water.
