LIGHT SCATTERING REVIEWS 5 This is the fifth 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. The focus of this volume is on radiative transfer and optics of highly reflective objects such as snow and ice.
