A comparison has been made between (1) the computed angular scattering coefficient for a polydisperse cloud of small, spherical (Mie) particles and (2) the measured angular scattering coefficient for a polydisperse cloud of irregular, randomly oriented (Mie) particles fitting the same distribution function and having the same material properties. The comparison has been made for eight wavelengths covering the visible range.
