This paper discusses the results of experimental study of the polarization degree of upward going radiation at dif-ferent heights. An approximate procedure is developed to calculate the polarization characteristics of the radiation in the atmosphere-ocean system. This procedure takes into account the polarization characteristics of the sky, roughness of the ocean surface and polarization of the upward going radiation from underwater. Within the framework of polarization sensing technique we have investigated the influence of the observation height on the results of water turbidity measurements.
