Abstract

The equation of Radiative Transfer for coherent scattering atmosphere was developed by Woolley and Stibbs. The equation of Radiative Transfer for coherent scattering which is an integro-differential equation has been solved by various methods. The Double Interval Spherical Harmonic Method introduced effectively by Wilson and Sen has already been used by Ghosh and Karanjai to solve the equation of Radiative Transfer in coherent isotropic scattering atmosphere as well as coherent anisotropic scattering atmosphere with Pommraning phase function. The Double Interval Spherical Harmonic Method has been successfully used in this paper to solve the equation of Radiative Transfer for coherent anisotropic scattering atmosphere with planetary phase function.
