This paper proposes an approach for Increasing visibility of single hazy image under night condition which utilizes a combination of histogram equalization, gamma correction, and dark channel prior with soft matting technique, refined transmission procedure to avoid the generation of block artifacts in the restored image, and effective transmission map estimation by adjusting its intensity via an enhanced transmission procedure based on the adaptive gamma correction technique. Our result shows better contrast noise ratio and peak signal to noise ratio values over existing methods based on dark channel prior.
