Time dispersion plays an important role in the propagation of femtosecond pulses through water. The combined effects of time dispersion, radial diffraction and the Kerr nonlinearity on the pulse propagation are analyzed and it is shown that normal time dispersion leads to significant temporal broadening of ultrashort pulses and that it increases the threshold power for catastrophic self-focusing.
