Abstract

We use a Monte Carlo code that calculates the complete Stokes vector to predict the degree of polarization in the complete observable solid angle at any level in an atmosphere–ocean system. Using the Stokes vector components, we can find the positions of neutral points in a simulated plane-parallel atmosphere–ocean system for various conditions. We examine the locations and behavior of these neutral points for an observer placed directly above and beneath the air–water boundary and show how their positions are influenced by different atmospheric and oceanic conditions.
