About this book


Light scattering review (vol 8) is aimed at the presentation of recent advances in radiative transfer and light scattering optics. The topics to be covered include: scattering of light  by irregularly shaped particles suspended in the atmosphere (dust, ice crystals), light scattering by particles much larger as compared the wavelength of incident radiation, atmospheric radiative forcing, astrophysical radiative transfer, radiative transfer and optical  imaging in biological media, radiative transfer of polarized light, numerical aspects of radiative transfer.
