Abstract : An effort to process images in turbid water viewing environment for possible improvement in image quality and intelligibility is in progress at the Naval Postgraduate School under the direction of Professor Charles Therrien. As a part of this effort we investigated the performance and computational requirements af an existing algorithm. We also developed new methods, investigated their computational requirements, and studied their expected performance. Finally, we performed some very preliminary study on issues related to the possible real time implementation of these algorithms. In this report, we describe the results of these efforts.
