Abstract:

This report is part of an ongoing effort to characterize clouds. Analytic models have been developed for cloud transmission and simulations have been carried out for spatial and temporal spreading. A simulation was developed for radiative transfer in finite clouds in order to gain insight into cloud characteristics. This document describes the finite cloud model and its verification for a stratus cloud. Keywords Optical communications Radiative transfer Light transmission. edc
