Abstract : This final report summarized significant progress in combining light scattering with decision and estimation theory to determine whether or not aerosols are homogeneous spheres or shell-like (possibly encapsulated). Researchers have succeeded in comparing two parameter spheres with three parameter shells with a reasonable range of permitted radii and indices, and have demonstrated the feasibility of the next step: handling four parameter shells.
