Abstract

When remote sensing of the atmosphere is performed at wavelengths whose optical thickness is small or when the albedo for single scattering is small, then reflected, transmitted, and internal intensities can be computed through an approximate method which enumerates the intensity fields up to a finite number of scatterings. Results are also useful for approximating the general problem and for understanding the physical effects of the order of scattering.
