Turbulent inhomogeneities of fluid flow have the effect of scattering light in near-forward angles, thus providing an opportunity to use optics to quantify turbulence. Here we report measurements of the volume-scattering function in the range of 10(-7) to 10(-3) rad using a wave-front sensing technique. The total scattering coefficient b, due to scattering on turbulent inhomogeneities, is between 1 and 10 m(-1) under typical oceanographic conditions. The numerical calculations of turbulent… CONTINUE READING
