Abstract
Monte–Carlo numerical simulation (MCNS) is used to study the characteristics of an underwater scattering channel for an LED source in different types of water. The high scattering effect of turbid water significantly dispersed the signal’s intensity distribution and broadened the half power angle. An empirical path loss model is proposed and was proved effective by simulations in different types of water. In high turbid water, the receiving power is dominated by scattering, while the straight line power is negligible.
