This paper proposed an effective method called propagating deconvolution to recover single image degraded in a scattering medium. The propagating deconvolution is in the manner of the calculus, which is based on multi-layered decomposition of the scattering volume and modeled blurring function of a single-layer scattering volume. Parameters of the deconvolution algorithm are estimated just from in situ measurement of the pure scattered background from one single image.
