The experimental results on transformation of the spectral and spatial characteristics of femtosecond Ti:Sapphire-laser pulses with the wavelengths of 800 and 400 nm at both harmonics during filamentation in liquid media are presented. It is shown that spectral broadening of a laser pulse at the expense of phase self-modulation in a medium with cubic nonlinearity depends on pulse power and beam diameter. Emission with maximum at 464 nm is observed during filamentation of the pulses with wavelength of 400 nm in distilled water, which corresponds to stimulated Raman scattering of the water. Fluorescence of dissolved organic matters is observed in sea water.
