Underwater wireless optical communication (UWOC) has recently gained great research interest due to its capability of transmitting data underwater with high data rate and low latency. However, oceanic turbulence seriously degrades the optical signal quality and hence the performance of practical UWOC systems. Establishing more accurate and efficient phase screen models is in demand for studying the oceanic turbulence effect. In this paper, techniques for generating underwater random phase screens are studied and supplemented. A promising hybrid method combining sparse spectrum and Zernike polynomials methods is proposed and investigated, which generates phase screens with improved accuracy and efficiency.
