Abstract:

The overall goal of this work is to understand how visible light propagates through sea ice. In particular, I wish to understand how the physical properties of sea ice determine the beam spread function BSF and, conversely, to understand how measured BSFs can be used to deduce the scattering properties of sea ice.
