Abstract

Light scattering from small particles changes if the particles are absorbing. Whereas the effect is small for coronas and Bishop’s ring, glories show pronounced attenuation with increasing absorption. Results indicate suitable wavelength regions for studies of glory scattering from cloud tops. The behavior of core–shell particles could have applications for studying the atmosphere of Venus; in addition it provides more insight into the simple ray-path model of the glory.
