Development of Ice Crystal and Aerosol Scattering Model for Interpretation of Radiance and Nephelometric Data

Project: Research

Project Details

Key findings

A method to approximate azimuthally resolved light scattering patterns and phase functions of intermediate sized particles (i.e. Geometric Optics is not applicable and exact computations, if at all possible, are computationally very expensive) has been demonstrated and compared with results form an exact method, T-matrix.

Scattering parameters of irregular particles calculated with RTDF (Ray Tracing with Diffraction on Facets) has been used to interpret radiative properties of Saharan dust aerosol.
