Abstract:

This report presents the development and exposition of a non-Gaussian aerosol dispersion model and the effect of the aerosol cloud on electrooptical systems Explicitly, algorithms are provided to calculate both the transmitted and backscattered glare radiation components. Finally, a validation of the model was performed with good to excellent agreement. This validation included the space-time history of cloud geometry and aerosol concentration. Author
