Effects of Atmospheric Obscurants on the Propagation of Optical/IR Radiation
Every optical remote sensor, whether looking at the natural atmospheric constituents or other obscurants or pollutants, has to be able to look through the atmosphere. It is therefore important that one understands and can reliably predict the propagation properties of the ambient atmosphere for these remote sensing systems.
