Effect of the disperse composition and the index of refraction of particles suspended in seawater on the scattering phase functions has been studied numerically within the scattering angles from 175 to 180°. We studied the effect produced by suspensions formed from mineral and organic particles at various proportions. A comparative analysis of the role of each fraction in the formation of the scattering phase functions was carried out. The possibilities of using the results of model calculations as an a priori information in interpretation of the data of laser sensing of seawaters are discussed.
