The volume scattering function (VSF) of particles in water depends on the particles' size distribution and composition as well as their shape and internal structure. Inversion of the VSF thus provides information about the particle population. The commercially available LISST instrument measures the scattering at near forward angles to estimate the bulk size distribution of particles larger than about 1 μm. By using scattering over the full angular range (0°-180°), the recently improved VSF… CONTINUE READING
