Abstract
The results of theoretical study of the problem of detectability of vertical profiles of hydro- optical characteristics in sea water column with the help of airborne lidars are presented. The approach used is based on the developed theory of retroreflected light pulse formation in scattering medium with angular anisotropy of volume scattering function and Sakett's discriminability criterion; the effects of solar illumination, sea surface waves, and atmospheric backscattering are taken into account, as well as the internal noise factors of lidar transmitter and receiver. The recommendations are formulated for system parameters optimization for separate subsurface water layers detecting in various hydro-optical situations and different environmental conditions.
