Pagination or Media Count:
Monte Carlo procedures designated at LITE-I and LITE-II were developed to study the transport of light through the earths atmosphere under various environmental conditions. LITE-I treats monochromatic light emitted from a point source, and LITE-II treats monochromatic plane sources of light. The codes have been written in both ALGOL for the Burroughs B-5000 and FORTRAN II for other computers. The codes are sufficiently flexible to treat multiple scattering in an atmosphere in which air density and aerosol size distribution vary independently and arbitrarily with altitude. Provision for treating ground and cloud reflection with an albedo method is also available in the codes. The codes have been verified through comparisons with other calculations of light transport in the atmosphere. Utilization instructions, input data formats, sample problems, and the ALGOL listings of the codes are given to aid those who wish to utilize the codes.
