Abstract The purpose of this research is to study the effects of visible light colour, the presence of chlorophyll and marine snow, the turbidity and the light link configuration on the visible light communication through the salt water, and to elucidate a possibility of the underwater wireless visible light communication in the ocean. Furthermore, this research also examined its applicability to underwater radiation field such as decommissioning conditions at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station.
