1 September 1990 Ship shadowing: model and data comparisons
Author Affiliations +
The radiance distribution in a three dimensional volume of ocean water is obtained using a numerical finite difference scheme applied to the radiative transfer equation. The solutions to the model are obtained for a sunny sky and a surface ship that creates a shadow in the water. The model simulates the conditions for which data was collected. Radiance, upwelling and downwelling irradiance, water reflectively, and diffuse attenuation coefficient from the model and the experiment are compared.
