Light Scattering and Radiative Transfer: Basic Research and Applications





Session ID#: 22776

Session Description:
Light scattering and radiative transfer are two important branches of atmospheric physics essential to the implementation of advanced remote sensing techniques and the investigation of the radiative forcings caused by various atmospheric constituents (clouds and aerosols, in particular). This session provides a forum for the presentation of recent advances in electromagnetic scattering, such as the scattering properties of nonspherical aerosol particles and ice crystals, 3-D radiative transfer, vector radiative transfer simulations, fast radiative transfer models for the interpretation of hyperspectral measurements, and the use of fundamental light scattering and radiative transfer theories in active and passive remote sensing applications.
