Abstract:

The long term goals of this project are to understand and quantify light scattering from ensembles of both spherical and non-spherical objects in ocean water, to characterize the effect of ensembles of micro-organisms and inorganic particulates on the propagation of polarized light through sea water, and to assess the feasibility of computer simulated artificial neural network to extract optical properties of marine particulates from polarized light scattering measurements.
