Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Measurement of the angular scattering pattern of electromagnetic waves scattered by single or multiple targets provides a tool for characterizing the properties of the targets. This paper is concerned with the application of scattered light as a means for remotely determining the properties of atmospheric particulates or aerosols. These particles consist of all manner of dust, smoke, pollen, sulfates suspended in the atmosphere. They typically range from about one hundredth to several microns in act with visible and near visible radiation. Thus, they can profoundly affect the optical properties of the atmosphere, such as modifying the earth-atmosphere radiation and the climate.
