Abstract : The long term goals of this project were to obtain a thorough understanding of the behavior of the complete Stokes both within the ocean and in the atmosphere as well for both elastic and inelastic scattering for both active and passive sources. Specifically, we examined how one could use polarization information to obtain more information about the IOP's of both oceanic and littoral zone constituents. A systematic study was also made of the neutral points in the atmosphere ocean system for both reflected and transmitted radiation.
