This work investigates performance of recent feature-based matching techniques when applied to registration of underwater images. Matching methods are tested versus diff erent contrast en¬hancing pre-processing of images. As a result of the performed experiments for various dominat¬ing in images underwater artifacts and present deformation, the outper¬forming preprocessing, detection and description methods are proposed.
