Paper Abstract

The total attenuation coefficient is a significant parameter of the water column being strictly related to the light penetration depth and to the quantity of suspended and dissolved substances. This parameter is measured in situ by optical instruments while its remote measurement can be achieved by lidars. The lidar measurement of the total attenuation coefficient is based on the Raman scattering due to the OH stretching of water molecule. This paper discusses the analytical base of the measurement.
