Paper Abstract

A comprehensive model which simulates the signature radiance from a discrete cloud of aerosols and vapors suspended in the atmosphere, for a completely general configuration of cloud, observer and sun, has been developed. The program of calculations has been computerized for validity over the range 0.25 to 28.5 µm, as it uses the atmospheric transmittance/radiance model LOWTRAN. Future extensions of the model are discussed.
