About this book

This is the 3rd volume of the "Light Scattering Reviews" series devoted to current knowledge of light scattering problems and both experimental and theoretical research techniques related to their solution. This volume covers applications in remote sensing, inverse problems and geophysics, with a particular focus on terrestrial clouds. The influence of clouds on climate is poorly understood. The theoretical aspects of this problem constitute the main emphasis of this work.


Chapter 1. Single light scattering
1.1 Observational quantification of the optical properties of clouds
1.2 Anomalous diffraction of light by small particles and some applications in bio-agent detection
1.3 Null-field method with discrete sources
1.4 Spatial symmetries in electromagnetic and acoustic scattering theory

Chapter 2. Inverse problems
2.1 VLIDORT: A linearized pseudo-spherical vector discrete ordinate radiative transfer code for forward model and retrieval studies in multilayer multiple scattering media
2.2 Linearized radiative transfer equation and inverse problems in a spherical atmosphere
2.3 Time-dependent 1D and 3D radiative transfer in the diffusion regime, with applications to active and passive optical remote sensing of dense clouds

Chapter 3. Light reflection from particulate surfaces
3.1 Bi-directional reflectance studies of closely packed natural and artificial particulate surfaces
3.2 Reflective properties of particulate media: theory and experiment
3.3 Laboratory photopolarimetric measurements of particulate surfaces
3.4 Modeling of light scattering by particulate media based on the geometrical optics approximation

Media reviews

This one combines state-of-the-art theoretical contributions with applications of light scattering techniques to various fields ranging from cloud optics to microbial biophysics. [...] 'Light Scattering Reviews 3' volume is written by active researchers and recognized experts in their selected light scattering topics. Therefore, it is highly recommended for a broad light scattering community and for other scientists working on related or multidisciplinary problems involving light scattering techniques.
