Calculation of radiative fluxes from the surface to top of atmosphere based on ISCCP and other global data sets: Refinements of the radiative transfer model and the input data
[1] We continue reconstructing Earth’s radiation budget from global observations in as much detail as possible to allow diagnosis of the effects of cloud (and surface and other atmosphericExpand
Scattering, Absorption, and Emission of Light by Small Particles
Preface Acknowledgements Part I. Basic Theory of Electromagnetic Scattering, Absorption, and Emission: 1. Polarization characteristics of electromagnetic radiation 2. Scattering, absorption, andExpand
Application of spheroid models to account for aerosol particle nonsphericity in remote sensing of desert dust
[ 1] The possibility of using shape mixtures of randomly oriented spheroids for modeling desert dust aerosol light scattering is discussed. For reducing calculation time, look-up tables wereExpand
Capabilities and limitations of a current FORTRAN implementation of the T-matrix method for randomly oriented, rotationally symmetric scatterers
A detailed description of modern ¹-matrix FORTRAN codes which incorporate all recent developments, are publicly available on the World Wide Web, and are, apparently, the most efficient and powerful tool for accurately computing light scattering by randomly oriented rotationally symmetric particles is provided.

Modeling phase functions for dustlike tropospheric aerosols using a shape mixture of randomly oriented polydisperse spheroids
Laboratory and in situ measurements show that scattering properties of natural nonspherical particles can be significantly different from those of volume-or surface-equivalent spheres, thusExpand
Reprint of: T-matrix computations of light scattering by nonspherical particles: a review
We review the current status of Waterman's T-matrix approach which is one of the most powerful and widely used tools for accurately computing light scattering by nonspherical particles, both singleExpand
Light scattering by nonspherical particles : theory, measurements, and applications
This book provides a most welcome review and grounding in the necessary basics of the subject, and will prove to be a most useful addition to the literature in the ever-expanding field of light scattering. Expand
Light scattering by randomly oriented axially symmetric particles
Light scattering by ensembles of independently scattering, randomly oriented, axially symmetric particles is considered. The elements of the scattering matrices are expanded in (combinations of)Expand
Spectrally Consistent Scattering, Absorption, and Polarization Properties of Atmospheric Ice Crystals at Wavelengths from 0.2 to 100 um
AbstractA data library is developed containing the scattering, absorption, and polarization properties of ice particles in the spectral range from 0.2 to 100 μm. The properties are computed based onExpand
Bidirectional Reflectance of Flat, Optically Thick Particulate Layers: An Efficient Radiative Transfer Solution and Applications to Snow and Soil Surfaces
Abstract We describe a simple and highly efficient and accurate radiative transfer technique for computing bidirectional reflectance of a macroscopically flat scattering layer composed ofExpand
