Paper Abstract

Mie theory is used to study the influence of organic film coatings for bubbles on optical scattering properties of ship wakes. The influence of organic film coatings on the normalized volume scattering function of single bubble is researched. Based on the fractal data of ship wakes, analysis and comparison are made on the scattering properties of clean and coated bubbles, including the normalized volume scattering function, scattering coefficient, backscattering coefficient and backscattering ratio. Organic film coatings have little influence on the critical angle scattering. Contributions of the organic film coatings to the scattering properties of ship wakes relates to the thickness and refractive index of them, in addition, the normalized volume scattering function also relates to the scattering angle. Scattering properties of ship wakes are of importance to wake homing and optical remote sensing of ocean.
