Abstract
An equation for a multiply scattered lidar return from sea water is considered. The multiply scattered radiation is taken into account in the small-angle approximation, and only single scattering is considered at large angles. A relationship between the components of multiply and single scattered radiation is numerically studied depending on the receiver field-of-view angle at various optical depths of a water layer. A new representation of lidar return is suggested. It is based on the expression for a lidar return assuming unbounded field-of-view angle of the retriever. This approach allows us to consider multiple scattering as a useful signal component in solving inverse problems.
