On the intensity and polarization of radiation emerging from a thick Rayleigh scattering atmosphere

V. Natraj, J. W. Hovenier

Abstract


We compute the intensity and polarization of reflected and transmitted light in optically thick Rayleigh scattering atmospheres We obtain results accurate to within one unit in the eighth decimal place. The results have been validated using a variety of methods.

Keywords


Rayleigh Scattering; Polarization; Optically Thick
