Abstract
In several LIDAR sounding experiments, certain anomalies in the registered pulse shape were observed, such as the time delay between maxima of pulse of sea-water response and surface- reflected pulse, and unexpectedly high level of signals from isolated sea-water layers. These peculiarities cannot be explained with the traditional theoretical treatment of the echo-signals. In this paper, a new explanation of the return signals shape anomalies is presented. Our approach is based on the accounting of the angular anisotropy of the scattering in the back hemisphere and the geometrical conditions of the typical LIDAR experiments. We present computational data and laboratory measurement results related to enhanced backscattering by large coated particles suggested to model the optical properties of some algal cell species (diatoms, and so forth). The model calculations of the LIDAR signal shape show that such particles may be responsible for an anomalously high level of LIDAR signals from isolated sea-water layers.
