A technique is developed for calculating brightness fluctuations of the solar radiation outgoing from the sea depth through the rough surface. The technique is based on a locally parabolic model of the air/water interface. The dependences of the variance, variation and correlation coefficients of the backscatter on the wind velocity, solar zenith angle, and optical radiation wavelength are studied.
