Abstract

The scattering coefficient of water as a function of concentration of hydrosol particles is calculated. A new quantum-mechanical approach to calculate the multiple-scattering phenomenon in seawater is proposed. The approach is based on Maxwell’s equations for the light fields in stochastically scattering water with hydrosols. The water is modeled as a thermally fluctuating medium filled with the particles. It is found that at small concentrations of scatterers the scattering coefficient is linear in the concentration. At higher values of concentrations the dependence on the concentration may be approximated by a power law.
