We analyze the spatiotemporal distortions of an ultrashort pulse focused through a thin scattering surface. We show and experimentally verify that in such a scenario temporal distortions are proportional to the distance from the optical axis and are present only outside the focal point, as result of geometrical path length differences. We use wavefront shaping to correct for the spatiotemporal distortions and to temporally compress chirped input pulses through the scattering medium.
