Abstract:

A series of experimental measurements of the visible light angular scattering profiles of clouds is described. The results for single layer overcast clouds were found to correlate well with standard hemispheric and narrow-angle pyreheliometric transmittances. The resulting expression for the angular scattering profile of an overcast cloud layer is given.
