Abstract

A Monte Carlo model has been developed which simulates the multiple-scattering of middle-uv radiation in the lower atmosphere. The source of radiation is assumed to be monochromatic and located at a point. The physical effects taken into account in the model are Rayleigh and Mie scattering, pure absorption by particulates and trace atmospheric gases, and ground albedo. The model output consists of the multiply scattered radiance as a function of look-angle of a detector located within the atmosphere. Several examples are discussed, and comparisons are made with direct-source and single-scattered contributions to the signal received by the detector.
