Analysis of Observations and Methods of Calculating Oceanic Hydrophysical Fields


The paper considers the dependence of the attenuation coefficients of waves covered with an elastic anisotropic film on the direction of their propagation. It is shown that contrast anisotropy takes place with slicks being observed.
