About this book

The book consists of 3 chapters with 10 contributions written by internationally renowned experts in the correspondent areas. The first chapter is devoted to the study of light scattering by a single particle and also by the ensembles of particles in the single scattering approximation valid for a low concentration of scatterers. In particular, light scattering by ice crystals, soil particles and biological particles is considered. The authors pay attention to both theoretical and experimental results in the area.

In short, this volume gives a valuable picture of recent developments in the area. The second chapter is aimed at the investigation of multiple light scattering and radiative transfer. The last chapter is devoted to the applications of light scattering techniques in combustion and marine research. Furthermore, this book has the potential to further facilitate studies in the area of light scattering media optics and be of importance to researchers across various scientific fields including astronomy, biophysics, combustion, meteorology, optics, remote sensing and geophysics.
