Paper Abstract

The small angle volume scattering function (SAVSF) of seawater is one of the most important ocean optical parameters, which influences the laser beam propagation and the underwater image properties, so the in situ data of SAVSF have a great importance in ocean optics and in many applications. We have built a new type of scatterometer for measuring the SAVSF of seawater. The instrument uses an underwater imaging system to measure the optical transfer function (OTF) of the seawater body, then the SAVSF can be calculated. The configuration of the scatterometer is presented and the main performance is analyzed. The results of in situ experiments in the East China Sea are also presented.
