Manuscript presents the results of study the anomalous light absorption by a system: Graphene monolayer on the water surface. Properties of single-layer graphene-water complex were investigated with the help of powerful laser beam. According to the investigation, an increase in light absorption by the sample was observed. Two possible causes of such anomalous absorption were considered: The doping process of single-layer graphene by the water molecules, and the scattering of optical radiation by microbubbles formed as a result of heating process of the monolayer.
