About this book

This is the next volume in series of "Light Scattering Reviews". The volume is composed of several papers of leading researchers in their respective fields. The main focus of this book is light scattering, radiative transfer and optics of snow.


Chapter 1. Single light scattering
1.1. Finite-difference time domain solution of light scattering by arbi
1.2.Light scattering by irregularly shaped particles comparable with wavelength trarily shaped particles and surfaces
1.3.Light scattering by large particles
1.4. Polar nephelometer: design and measurements

Chapter 2. Radiative transfer
2.1 The general-purpose discrete-ordinate algorithm DISORT for radiative transfer
2.2. SCIATRAN: a new tool for studies of the polarized radiative transfer in the terrestrial atmosphere - underlying surface system

Chapter 3. Remote sensing of atmosphere and surface
3.1. Genesis and evolution of the use of polarization in remote sensing of atmospheres and oceans
3.2. Airborne measurements of solar spectral irradiance and our understanding of cloud and aerosol radiative effects

Chapter 4. Scattering optics and remote sensing of snow
4.1. Complexity of the scattering optics of natural snow cover
4.2. Optical properties of snow surface and remote sensing of snow physical parameters
