The sea surface statistical models are directly related with the calculation of the total radiance reflected from the sea surface seen by the observer. Three major work which model the sea surface slope statistics are Cox and Munk, Mermelstein and Shaw-Churnside models. The reflected sea radiance observed by an observer is composed of path radiance, reflected sky radiance, reflected sun radiance and blackbody emission of the sea surface. By this work, the total radiance observed by the observer can be calculated for different sea surface slope models and saline sea environments. The outputs of MATLAB program are in good agreement with the previous studies.
