dc.description.abstractIt is difficult to accurately and quickly (i.e in real time) create a digital surface model of a water surface using bathymetric lidar when presented with water turbidity. Accurate and consistent modeling of the water surface is required in order to correct for the surface’s volatility when imaging the sea floor. However, this becomes exceedingly difficult due to the limited data return from water, the uneven surface, and noise. For this purpose, we use a highly sensitive Geiger Mode Avalanche PhotoDiode camera to collect this feint data and attempt to create an accurate digital surface model for water which can be utilized in future imaging computations.
