Abstract:

Presented are some results of machine computations of the scattering functions, the extinction-, scattering-, and absorption-coefficients for pure absorbing carbon particles, and the compound carbon particles with concentric water shell of varying thickness and an analysis of the absorption properties of various single particles. The scattering and absorption properties of single particles are used to calculate the absorptivity, transmissivity, and reflectivity of three cloud models a pure carbon particle cloud, a cloud of water droplets and carbon particles, and a cloud of compound concentric carbon- water particles. All three clouds are 1000 meters thick and near the ground.
