We present an experimental study of the Raman spectrum of pure and synthetic seawater with respect to its salinity and temperature dependence. Experiments made in the laboratory with both cw and pulsed excitation yield information on the limits and applicability of the technique in actual experiments in the field. We have also performed an experimental analysis to determine the presence of stimulated Raman scattering and its influence on the temperature dependence of the spectrum.
