The temperature and salinity of liquid water can be inferred from its Raman spectrum. This report assesses and evaluates the prominent factors which influence the ability of a remote sensing Raman lidar to measure subsurface profiles of water temperature and salinity. A plan is developed for the experimental investigation of the feasibility of the technique in ocean and coastal waters. Interferences, including surface wave effects, differential attenuation, differential depolarization and fluorescence are considered. Preliminary experimental data taken from a boat in the natural coastal environment are also reported. Author
