Paper Abstract

A microbubble in the ocean may be coated by a thin film sorbed onto its surface. We identify scattering features which should be useful for the optical characterization of the bubble size and film thickness. We investigated theoretical scattering patterns for spherical gas bubbles coated by films of uniform thickness h. The patterns were computed for bubbles of various radii in the range 7 to 190 gm with h from 0.2 to 3 μm. The emphasis was on the near-critical-angle and near-Brewster-angle scattering regions where regular features are attributable to the reflection properties of the bubble.
