Paper Abstract

The short wave radiation in atmosphere will go through a multiple scattering process. In this paper, a special function, radiative function (RF), is studied to deal with the integration on optical depth involved in the calculation of every order of scattering lights, providing that the atmosphere is a plane parallel layer and the product of atmospheric scattering phase function and atmospheric single scattering albedo is a polynomial of optical depth. The properties of RF will be very useful to improve the calculation efficiency of multiple scattering.
