Paper Abstract

A great deal of information can be obtained about aerosol and Rayleigh scattering by observing the polarization state for both reflected and transmitted radiation. Results of neutral point behavior are presented for 1) a Rayleigh or molecular scattering atmosphere; 2) a haze L distribution of aerosols typical of those found in the earth's atmosphere; and 3) two actual models of the earth's atmosphere which carbine Rayleigh scattering with a normal aerosol content and with a one-third normal aerosol content.
