Abstract:

The objectives of this research is to develop a numerical or analytical model that predicts angle-dependent scattering of polarized light from ensembles of non-spherical marine organisms and marine detritus and to verify and examine the validity and range of applications of the model by comparison with exact calculations andor experimental results as appropriate. Specific tasks toward the objectives are 1 to develop an artificial neural network to recognize features in the scattering matrix elements associated with the irregular shape of oceanic scatterers, and 2 to refine and enhance the coupled-dipole approximation method.
