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.
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.
