Abstract (Document Summary)

The technique developed over the past 18 months by scientists from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have started as a means of improving underwater photography. But it has wide applications in engineering, science, and even lifesaving, and has aroused much interest around the world - even before Dr. Yoav Schechner is due to present the work before the prestigious IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition in Washington, DC, in July.

It technique can be used for checking and monitoring underwater pipes and cables, bridge pylons, drilling rigs, the infrastructure of artificial islands, archeological sites, robots working in water, sailing vessels, and atomic reactors. It also could be of great assistance in scientific research (biology, underwater archeology, and underwater mapping) - and, of course, for amateur underwater photographers.
