Experimental corroboration of formation under the influence of a stream of gas bubbles of a film on
the water table consisting of micro seaweed of a phytoplankton and influencing the characteristics of
reflected signals in a microwave range is got. It is shown, that the stream of emerging air bubbles
(diameter 0.1-1 mm) leads to substantial growth of concentration of cells of a phytoplankton in nearsurface
layer of water. In laboratory experiments on studying of characteristics of microwave signals of
8-mm of the range reflected from an rough water surface, values of radar contrasts and Doppler
frequency shift depending on biophysical characteristics of a phytoplankton are measured.
Keywords: remote sensing, phytoplankton, air bubbles, radar contrasts
