Abstract

Methods of using cw and pulsed electromagnetic sources are compared for determination of the coefficients of the Legendre polynomial expansion of the single-scattering phase function from measurements of the multiply scattered radiance emerging from the surfaces of the atmosphere. Quadrature formulas are presented with which to calculate the angular moments of the radiance needed for the methods.
