Abstract

Monte Carlo calculations have been performed to investigate the effect of multiple scattering on the frequency spectra caused by Brillouin scattering in the ocean. It is shown that the use of the frequency spectra to determine the speed of sound profile and the hydrosol backscattering probability is stable under multiple scattering because the problem is limited to single backscattering events.
