A single-parameter statistical model of directed light-scattering coefficients of coastal haze is suggested. The scattering coefficient for λ = 0.55 μm is the input parameter of the model. The accuracy of restoration of directed light-scattering coefficients for the scattering angles of 15–160° has been determined to be no worse than 20–25%. The increase in values of the restoration errors for the scattering angles for the near-forward and -backward directions is mentioned. The physical reasons for the observed statistical relationships are briefly discussed.
