    Abstract

    A series of Monte Carlo and HydroLight radiative transfer simulations are used to demonstrate that the traditional form of the Fresnel transmission across the water-air interface is accurate. This contradicts assertions to the contrary in a recent paper [Optics Express, 25(22) 27086 (2017)] that suggested the transmission factor was dependent upon the turbidity of the water.
