Abstract

In a previous paper, four-flux models for solving the scattering transfer equation in terms of Lorenz-Mie parameters were designed for Lorenz-Mie scatter centers embedded in a slab. Formulas for the various transmittances and reflectances were established. The special cases of transparent and nonscattering particles require special treatments which are described in the present work and lead to simpler formulas. The special case of completely opaque atmospheres is also considered. Three- and two-flux models are derived from the general formulas. The connection with classical literature is pointed out.
