Aspects of the point spread function in the coastal zone

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Measurements of the point spread function in the coastal zone will be presented. While measurements appear to be very similar to the deeper ocean measurements, other factors in the coastal zone that could influence the point spread function (PSF) were investigated. Laboratory experiments were performed to look at the effect of inhomogeneities, or layering, on the point spread function, and the layering was found to have a significant effect on the PSF.
