Calculating the scattering properties of fine-grained particulates of planetary surfaces

Abstract

Determining the compositions of fine particulates, such as the regoliths of the Moon and near Earth asteroids, has been a problematic task in infrared remote sensing. Difficulty in modeling the scattering properties arises due to the multiple scattering, absorption, and transmission of light that occurs when regolith particles have diameters on the order of… (More)
