Abstract:

The development of the instruments for studying light scattering in the sea may be considered tentatively completed. Quantitative characteristics have been obtained which make it possible to make the first estimates of the parameters of the pulse transfer function of the process. It was found necessary to increase the time resolution of the detector even more and decrease the duration of the sounding pulse. Continuation of experimental studies in ocean waters of high transparency would make it possible to improve the quality of measurements using existing equipment with the already achieved time resolution.
