Abstract

The development of a simple model of the seawater inherent optical properties (IOPs) associated with bubbles and sediments would represent a great advance in surf zone optics. We present one solution for this problem using a combination of geometrical optics and Fraunhofer diffraction. An analytic model of the IOPs of bubbles and sediments (the extinction and absorption coefficients, and phase function) is developed in terms of the moments of the particle size distribution and the complex refractive index of particles.
