Abstract:

The report describes the work involved in making modifications to the FLASH and BRITE Monte Carlo procedures and using these programs to evaluate 1 the effects of neglecting polarization on the scattered light intensities in molecular and turbid atmospheres 2 the error involved in using plane-parallel atmospheres to represent spherical atmospheres for large zenith angles of incidence and 3 the effect of dust layers at different altitudes on the color ratios computed for twilight conditions.
