About this book

The 5th volume of LIGHT SCATTERING REVIEWS is devoted to modern knowledge and milestones in both experimental and theoretical techniques related to radiative transfer and optics of such highly reflective objects as snow and ice. Twelve leading world experts in their respective fields provide important contributions to this fascinating subject.


Chapter 1. Optical properties of small particles and their aggregates, 1.1. Numerical light scattering simulations and optical properties of aggregates 1.2. Application of scattering theories to the characterization of precipitation processes Chapter 2. Modern methods in radiative transfer 2.1. Using a 3D radiative transfer Monte-Carlo model to assess radiative effects on polarized reflectances above cloud scenes,2.2. Linearization of radiative transfer in spherical geometry: an application of the forward-adjoint perturbation theory, 2.3. Convergence acceleration of radiative transfer equation solution at strongly anisotropic scattering, 2.4. Code SHARM: fast and accurate radiative transfer over spatially variable anisotropic surfaces, 2.5. General invariance relations reduction method and its applications to solutions of radiative transfer problems for turbid media of various configurations Chapter 3. Optical properties of bright surfaces and regoliths,3.1. Theoretical and observational techniques for estimating light scattering in first-year Arctic sea ice,3.2 Reflectance of various snow types: measurements, modeling, and potential for snow melt monitoring, 3.3. Simulation and modeling of light scattering in paper and print applications, 3.4. Coherent backscattering in planetary regoliths
