The color of an object imaged in a turbid medium varies with distance and medium properties, deeming color an unstable source of information in underwater images. Assuming rough 3D scene information has become relatively easy to reconstruct, the main challenge in color recovery is estimating medium properties in situ, at the time of acquisition. We suggest and demonstrate a method for estimating the medium properties (both attenuation and scattering) using only images of backscattered light from the system's light sources with no calibration targets.
