Multiple Scattering in Clumpy Media. II. Galactic Environments
We present and discuss the results of new multiple-scattering radiative transfer calculations for three representative types of galactic environments, filled with either homogeneous or two-phaseExpand

The 1997 reference of diffuse night sky brightness
In the following we present material in tabular and graphical form, with the aim to allow the non-specialist to obtain a realistic estimate of the diffuse night sky brightness over a wide range ofExpand

Interstellar Depletions Updated: Where All the Atoms Went
Measures of the depletion of interstellar elements from the gas phase are usually derived by assuming that the general composition of the interstellar medium is identical to that of the Sun. AExpand

Dust in the local interstellar wind
The gas-to-dust mass ratios found for interstellar dust within the solar system, versus values determined astronomically for the cloud around the solar system, suggest that large and smallExpand

Astrophysics of Dust
Currently ∼36 different absorption bands have been detected in the infrared spectra of cold, dense interstellar and circumstellar environments. These are attributed to the vibrational transitions ofExpand

The Amount of Interstellar Carbon Locked in Solid Hydrogenated Amorphous Carbon
Some form of hydrogenated amorphous carbon (HAC) is widely regarded as a likely component of dust in the diffuse interstellar medium of the Galaxy. The most direct observational evidence is the ∼2950Expand

Dust and the transfer of stellar radiation within galaxies
We present and discuss models for the transfer of ultraviolet, visual, and near-infrared radiation within a variety of spherical geometries which are intended to approximate different types of dustyExpand

Dust Attenuation in Late-Type Galaxies. I. Effects on Bulge and Disk Components
We present results of new Monte Carlo calculations made with the DIRTY code of radiative transfer of stellar and scattered radiation for a dusty giant late-type galaxy like the Milky Way, whichExpand

OBSERVATION OF THE FAR-ULTRAVIOLET CONTINUUM BACKGROUND WITH SPEAR/FIMS
We present the general properties of the far-ultraviolet (FUV; 1370-1710 A) continuum background over most of the sky, obtained with the Spectroscopy of Plasma Evolution from Astrophysical RadiationExpand
