LIGHT SCATTERING REVIEWS 6

Alexander Kokhanovsky (Editor)

LIGHT SCATTERING REVIEWS 6 This is the sixth volume in the series Light Scattering Reviews, devoted to current knowledge of light scattering problems and both experimental and theoretical research techniques related to their solution. The focus of this volume is on the remote sensing of atmosphere and surface.
