Paper Abstract

A numerical model of the wind-driven undulation of the sea surface is constructed in this paper. This model was used for studying optical properties of the sea surface by the Monte Carlo method. It is shown that simulation of the field of the sea surface elevations makes it possible to more precisely determine the optical properties of the swell with allowance for multiple reflection effects and radiation shading by surface elements.
