Paper Abstract

A solution to the inverse problem of laser sensing of sea water is considered taking into account multiple scattering. Two forms of the lidar equation have been analyzed. The first form is based on the selection of the component caused by single scattering. The second form is based on the asymptotic signal, which would be recorded in case of unbounded field-of-view angle of the receiver. For each form of the lidar signal the iterative algorithms for the reconstruction of the extinction coefficient profile have been developed. The algorithms use physically justified functional relation between the extinction and scattering coefficients of sea water. The examples are given of the inversion of real lidar signals by the developed algorithms.
