A new structured-light method for 3D imaging has been developed which can simultaneously estimate both the geometric shape of the water surface and the geometric shape of underwater objects. The method requires only a single image and thus can be applied to dynamic as well as static scenes. Experimental results show the utility of this method in non-invasive underwater 3D reconstruction applications. The performance of the new method is studied through a sensitivity analysis for different parameters of the suggested method.
