Paper Abstract

Shipboard polarized lidar for upper seawater column sounding through sea surface was designed. The lidar was designed to obtain the vertical profiles of hydro-optical properties and to locate of subsurface high-scattering layers and some different inhomogeneities. The source of the linearly polarized light sounding pulses is YAP:Nd Q-switched laser with SHG. Two identical photo-receiving devices are used to register waveforms of the two orthogonal-polarized components of echo-signal power. Field experiments with the use of the device were carried out at the several areas of the Atlantic Ocean. Subsurface high-scattering layers were detected during the field experiments.
