Abstract

The validation of the multiresolution model of sea surface infrared optical properties developed at ONERA is investigated in the one-dimensional case by comparison with a reference model, using a submillimeter discretization of the surface. Having expressed the optical properties, we detail the characteristics of each model. A set of numerical tests is made for various wind speeds, resolutions, and realizations of the sea surface. The tests show a good agreement between the results except for grazing angles, where the impact of multiple reflections and the effects of adjacent rough surfaces on shadow have to be investigated.
