Paper Abstract

Quantitative analytical procedures for relating selected water quality parameters to the characteristics of the backscattered signals, measured by remote sensors, require the solution of the radiative transport equation in turbid media. In this paper, we present an approximate closed form solution of this equation and based on this solution discuss the remote sensing of the sediments. The results are compared with other standard closed form solutions such as quasi-single scattering approximations.
