Paper Abstract

A theory is presented that predicts the effects of multiple scattering at small angles in the forward direction (less than 30 deg). An expression is developed to compute the fraction of light scattered exactly N times and the mean number of scattering as a function of transmission. The method of determining the mean-free-path for the total cloud is given.
