    if a nuclear exploded above the sea with an altitude about the bottom of the maximum diameter spherical fireball is about to touch the sea level (the explosion altitude is a little bigger or same with the maximum radius of the spherical fireball), how deep can the initial flash go through the sea whicn can sensed by human eyes.what about the light of the fireball do on the same condition? (i think the inital flash is the brightest light during the entire explosion)
    just take two examples: 1、a 20kt TNT nuclear explosion
    2、a 100 megaton TNT nuclear explosion
    since i know that the sun light can only go through about 200 meter under the sea level, and after 500 meters there is total darkness.
