Abstract
Coherent and completely polarized optical radiation, being stationary multiply scattered, becomes globally non-polarized. Nevertheless, the degree of polarization equals unity at any point of the scattered field, which is characterized by nonuniform spatial distribution of the polarization azimuth and ellipticity, so that the state of polarization changes from point to point. In this paper we discuss some approaches to describe such "pseudodepolarized" optical fields and introduce convenient measures of the distance between the states of polarization in two points of such fields connected with the observable quantities.
