Light Scattering Reviews 2

Remote Sensing and Inverse Problems

Alexander A. Kokhanovsky (Editor)

Light Scattering Reviews 2Light Scattering Reviews is the second volume in a series devoted to bringing together the state-of-the-art and milestones in our knowledge of light scattering media optics. Contributions from leading researchers focus on both the experimental and theoretical results in the area. The book provides a valuable picture of recent developments in light scattering, radiative transfer, remote sensing and inversion theory for multiply scattering media. It facilitates studies in optics of turbid media and will be of great importance for researchers in a variety of disciplines.

Divided into three parts, this volume first discusses current problems in remote sensing and global climate modelling, followed by the description of latest advances in the field of inversion theory for multiply scattering media and finally looks at numerical techniques currently used to study optical properties of nonspherical particles and also 3-D radiative transfer.
