Abstract
Algorithms developed for underwater horizontal and vertical visibilities are presented. The algorithms have been developed to derive the underwater visibilities based on the contrast theory using the in-situ and Hydrolight derived optical parameters. Unlike many other algorithms on vertical visibilities, these algorithms have been developed using the photopic optical parameters. One of the important components in the contrast visibility relation is the coupling parameter, which has been modeled using the underwater average cosine. These algorithms for vertical and horizontal visibilities have been validated for the coastal waters of Goa with the measured and those derived from the ocean color data of OCM-2 and MODIS.
