About this book

This book continues the "Light Scattering Reviews" series devoted to modern knowledge and milestones in both experimental and theoretical techniques related to light scattering and radiative transport problems. It gives a valuable picture of recent developments in the area of remote sensing and radiative transfer. The work has capabilities to further facilitate studes in light scattering media optics and be of importance for researchers across various scientific fields including astronomy, meteorology and geophysics.

The monograph includes eight in-depth review chapters contributed by leading experts in various aspects of light scattering and its applications. [...] this one provides a wealth of information presented mostly in a systematic, self-contained, and accessible form. [...] This book will be a valuable addition to any research or university library. Individual professional researchers should also seriously consider buying a copy of the book for personal use [...].
- Michael I. Mishchenko, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, Vol. 109, 2008
