About this book

This is the fourth volume in the series Light Scattering Reviews, devoted to current knowledge of light scattering problems and both experimental and theoretical research techniques related to their solution. This volume covers experimental studies in the optics of light scattering media, focusing on single light scattering and radiative transfer.

Light Scattering Reviews 4

  •  summarizes recent developments in the fields of light scattering media optics and radiative transfer;
  •  provides an up-to-date review of modern single and multiple light-scattering theory;
  •  focuses on radiative transfer and optics of highly reflective objects, such as snow and ice;
  •  uniquely covers numerical techniques in single and multiple light scattering;
  •  considers both theoretical and experimental results;
  •  presents the physical grounds of the opposition effects.

About the authors

 I  graduated from the Physical Department of the Belarusian State University in Minsk, Belarus (1983). Since then I have worked for the last 22 years in the Laboratory of light scattering media optics at the Institute of Physics (Minsk, Belarus). At the moment I am working with the SCIAMACHY algorithm development team at the Institute of Environmental Physics in Bremen (Germany). The main task is the development of new cloud retrieval algorithms for water and ice clouds as seen by the spectrometer SCIAMACHY (in space from 2002). Main results are obtained in the field of geometrical optics, asymptotic radiative transfer theory and trace gases/aerosol/cloud properties retrievals using passive remote sensing techniques.

I have written three books: Light Scattering Media Optics (1999, 2001, 2004), Polarization Optics of Random Media (2003), and

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reviews

From the reviews: “This collective monograph was published as volume 4 of the well-established Praxis/Springer series ‘Light Scattering Reviews’ … . this one is a must for any research or university library as well as for individual professionals working in the fields related to light scattering. This volume is a … demonstration of an advanced maturation stage of this useful series of monographs which have contributed quite significantly to thorough, systematic, and accessible exposition of the discipline of electromagnetic scattering by particles and its various applications.” (Michael I. Mishchenko, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer, Vol. 111, 2010)
