Abstract:

This document presents a literature survey on the remote sensing of ocean waters with Raman and Brillouin scattering. It explains the physical process involved for these scattering processes to occur in water and a description of techniques employed by researchers to exploit Raman and Brillouin scattering to measure temperature and sound velocity in water. The papers surveyed for this report present measurement accuracies ranging from - 0.75 msec to - 10 msec for measuring sound velocity using Brillouin scattering and - 0.4 deg C to 2 deg C for measuring temperature using Raman scattering.
