Light Scattering and Radiative Transfer

Alexander A. Kokhanovsky (Editor)

LIGHT SCATTERING REVIEWS 9: Light Scattering and Radiative Transfer This is the ninth 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 to describe modern advances in radiative transfer and light scattering optics.
