About this book

This 3rd volume Light Scattering Reviews is devoted to modern knowledge and milestones in both experimental and theoretical techniques related to light scattering and radiative transport problems. It will consist of 3 parts comprising 11 contributions written by world leading experts in their respective fields. The general focus of the book will be on remote sensing of geophysical media.

The first part will be devoted exclusively to studies of single light scattering by particles of different shapes and chemical compositions. The first chapter will review in situ measurements of cloud optical characteristics like cloud extinction and phase function, with the emphasis on ice clouds. Chapter 2 will cover opitcally soft particles common in marine environments and bio-suspensions while Chapter 3 will describe numerical techniques applicable not only to isotropic but also to chiral and anisotropic mdia. The final chapter in this part will deal with spatial symmetries in light scattering problems.

This 3rd volume gives a valuable picture of recent developments in the areas of single light scattering, radiative transfer in particulate media and inverse problems of spherical atmospheres. It will further facilitate studies in light scattering media optics and be of importance for researchers across various scientific fields including astronomy, meteorology and geophysics. 

Reviews

From the reviews: “This one combines state-of-the-art theoretical contributions with applications of light scattering techniques to various fields ranging from cloud optics to microbial biophysics. … ‘Light Scattering Reviews 3’ volume is written by active researchers and recognized experts in their selected light scattering topics. Therefore, it is highly recommended for a broad light scattering community and for other scientists working on related or multidisciplinary problems involving light scattering techniques.” (Nikolai Khlebtsov, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer, Vol. 111 (1), January, 2010)
