Abstract
The reflection of the sunlight over the sea surface is called glitter pattern. In previous works, when the onedimensional case is analyzed, the glitter function was mathematically described like a rect function. This rect function has proved to be a very good representation of the glitter pattern. In this paper a Gaussian glitter function is used like a first approximation to the rect function. The statistical relationship between the variance of the intensities of the image, the glitter pattern, and the variance of the sea surface slopes is obtained and analyzed. The analytical solutions in this relationship are mathematical different but the graphics are very similar.
