Abstract

We review existing experimental data and methods for calculating the Mueller matrix of ocean water for use as input in a simulation model applicable to laser remote sensing. Calculations of the Mueller matrix are made for scattering media of different refractive indices, shapes, and size distributions. Dependencies of the backscattering depolarization ratio as a function of the particle refractive index are presented, and we demonstrate the potential importance of polarization in bathymetric sensing.
