Method for Measuring the Volume-Scattering Function of Water
- Created: Tuesday, 01 December 2009
Currently, the total scattering of light
is measured as a difference from the
other two parts of the light budget equation.
This innovation will allow the
direct calculation of the total scattering
of light by taking an integral of the VSF
over all angles. This directly provides
one of the three components of the light
budget equation, allowing greater versatility
in its calculation.
