Abstract
This paper compares homogeneous analytical two-flow equation solutions to an improved iterative solution technique of the same differential equations that describe the transfer of irradiance in a layered medium such as water with depth dependent water constituents. The layered model is developed to be used in oceanic or atmospheric models in order to provide a detailed mechanism for the influence of irradiant energy in the heating rate of the medium. The layered model is designed to generate synthetic water surface reflectance signatures in the presence of depth dependent water constituents, various bottom types, and variable water depths. In addition, the model allows one to compute the influences of submerged targets or layers with unique reflectance signatures or unique absorption and backscatter characteristics.
