Abstract

The parameters are presented for the scattering phase functions measured in the northern part of the tropical Atlantic. The interrelation is considered between the parameters of the scattering functions and water dynamics. We present the scattering phase functions measured in waters of the main currents and in the regions of water upwelling and downwelling. The limiting values of the parameters of the scattering phase functions observed are presented. The interrelation is determined between the asymmetry factor of scattering phase functions and the scattering coefficient. The parameters of this interrelation measured in upwelling differ from those for the other waters in the experimental area. The interrelation is determined between the scattering and extinction coefficients.
