Clear formula for water penetration by wave frequency

I want a clear formula for clear water (and salty water) penetration by giving only the radio wave frequency .
I searched the web , the formulas on the web are so complicated .
Are there any simple formula available for that ?

Not my field but what sort of wave? Light? Sound? Radio? Mexican?

Another aspect is accuracy I presume. Neat clear formulas tends to be empirical in nature which typically only are fairly accurate over a limited set of input frequencies. So what level of accuracy you need/want and over what range of inputs matter a lot too.

For visual frequencies I've used https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer–Lambert_law along with measured absorption coefficients (interpolated). But my work was just for rendering, not absolute accuracy.
