About this book

Light Scattering Reviews (volume 7) is aimed at the description of modern advances in radiative transfer and light scattering. The following topics will be considered: the general - purpose discrete - ordinate algorithm DISORT for radiative transfer, fast radiative transfer techniques, use of polarization in remote sensing, Markovian approach for radiative transfer in cloudy atmospheres, coherent and incoherent backscattering by turbid media and surfaces, advances in radiative transfer methods as used for luminiscence tomography, optical properties of aerosol, ice crystals, snow, and oceanic water. This volume will be a valuable addition to already published volumes 1-6 of "Light Scattering Reviews".


Chapter 1. Radiative transfer and remote sensing
1.1. The general-purpose discrete-ordinate algorithm DISORT for radiative transfer
1.2. Fast radiative transfer techniques

1.4. Markovian approach and its applications in a cloudy atmosphere
1.5. Multiple scattering by discrete random media: coherent and incoherent backscattering
1.6. Multispectral optical luminescence tomography with the simplified spherical harmonics equations

Chapter 2. Atmospheric optics
2.1. The optical properties of natural and anthropogenic aerosols
2.2. Light scattering by atmospheric ice crystals
