Paper Abstract

Physical and mathematical description of laser sensing of ocean and sea waters is much more complicated than of atmospheric meteorological formations. The main problems here are higher optical density (turbidity) of water and much more complicated and variable scattering matrices of such waters compared to atmospheric ones due to the presence of biological components having very diverse sizes and shapes. Description of the lidar return signal from such media is complicated by the need to account for multiple scattering contribution. Approximation of double light scattering can be a certain compromise for not too turbid water. Results of numerical modeling of lidar returns from sea water with stratified inhomogeneity are discussed in the present paper.
