Paper Abstract

Measurements were made of the attenuation coefficient of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration lidar from a ship in the Southern California Bight in September 1995. The region from about 5 m to about 30 m in depth was covered. The laser was linearly polarized, and the receiver was operated with the same polarization, the orthogonal polarization, and a polarization angle of 45 degrees, so that the first three Stokes parameters of the scattered light can be estimated.
