A simple algorithm to calculate horizontal visibility of submerged
Lambertian object is proposed. This algorithm is based on the knowledge
of the three major parameters: seawater absorption coefficient, seawater
forward scattering coefficient, and the albedo of the object. The
algorithm is derived from the self-consistent approach to the radiative
transfer theory published earlier by the author. This approach is valid
for all possible values of absorption and forward scattering
coefficients and may be applied without restrictions to any type of
coastal water. A FORTRAN code to calculate horizontal visibility is
