Paper Abstract

Some laser bathymetry data exhibit a leading edge shoulder in the bottom return. The occurrence of such a shoulder was unexpected and its origin is not well understood. In order to develop a theoretical framework within which the origin of the shoulder might be elucidated and our understanding of optical pulse propagation in seawater improved, work has been initiated on a two component model of pulse propagation. A simplified version of the model will be described and some preliminary results presented.
