Paper Abstract

An improved surface reflectance model (SRM) for describing the polarimetric and photometric spectral polarized laser surface scattering is proposed. The model uses shadowing/obscuration and retroreflectance functions that are physically correlated to the surface. Results are compared to those obtained with the surface mode developed by the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan. The model under consideration is in an early stage of development.
