A Simulation Study for Computing the Emissivity of Clouds

S. Seker, M. E. Aydemir, G. Apaydin

Abstract


In this study, propagation through various distributions of lossy particles in clouds is investigated. Clouds may contain several types of crystal forms which can be modelled in the physical optics scattering region such as thin long cylinders and flat plate. The bistatic scattering patterns and emissivities of various types of clouds are computed for waves of selected polarizations passing through clouds with specified sizes, shapes and distributions. The results are in good agreement with the literature.
