The problem of an arbitrary medium probing by use of radiation flux on the bases of the monoenergetic transport equation is considered. The medium is assumed to comprise some bodies, which radiation characteristics differ from ones of the medium. The outgoing radiation density flux is assumed to be measured at a plane nonintersecting the bodies whereas the boundaries of the body projections (shadows) on the plane are to be found. The case when the direct imaging of the objects is embarrassing owing to a strong scattering and absorption within the medium. The current work is being carried out under a special project so the limitations imposed have a specific character. More definite, these limitations are adopted to the problem of the world ocean near-bottom zone probing.
