Abstract:

This report documents a Fortran computer program PCDIST, which may be used to calculate the light scattering phase function for a distribution of irregularly shaped particles. The subroutine also returns the average particle scattering and absorption cross-sections. PCDIST, which implements the semi- empirical theory of Pollack and Cuzzi, is called from a main program in which the user specifies particle characteristics via a construction called the parameter array. Examples demonstrating the use of the parameter array are given. Pollack-Cuzzi, Irregular particles, Light scattering, Aerosol characterization.
