If the benthic boundary in optically shallow waters is spatially inhomogeneous or sloping, the underwater light field is inherently three-dimensional (3D). Numerical simulations of 3D underwater radiances were made for environmental conditions observed in shallow Bahamian waters. The simulations show that if the pattern of bottom reflectance for an inhomogeneous but level bottom has a spatial scale much smaller than the bottom area seen by a radiometer, the inhomogeneous bottom can be replaced… CONTINUE READING
