Abstract:

Quantify and understand the inherent optical properties IOPs of natural particles from a standpoint of measuring size-distribution Understand how the properties of particles composition, shape, and internal structure affect their IOP. Incorporate these properties into radiative transfer models for prediction of downwelling and upwelling radiances.
