Abstract

We find that on propagation in turbulent ocean with power spectrum being a combination of power spectra of temperature and salinity fluctuations a stochastic beam can exhibit polarization changes which are qualitatively very similar to those which occur on propagation in atmospheric turbulence. However, pronounced quantitative difference between polarization changes in atmosphere and ocean should be noted. The analytical development is supported by numerical examples.
