About this book

Atmospheric Transmission, Emission and Scattering introduces the physical processes and meterology needed to understand the behaviour of light and radiation in the atmosphere. Integrating the treatment of atmospheric optics from the ultraviolet to the microwave, Atmospheric Transmission, Emission and Scattering gives an overview, together with discussions on the associated meterology and atmospheric composition. This provides the meterological background necessary to deal with the varying conditions found in the real atmosphere.
