Volume scattering function

  1. Mar 14, 2005 #1
    How is the angle determined in volume scattering function in water for a lidar application?

    The volume scattering function(VSF) for water is given by,
    VSF(teta) = A(lambda, S)*(1-cos power 2of teta(1-delta)/(1+delta))
    where teta is the direction of scatterred radiation.
    A is amplitude
    lambda is wavelength
    S is salinity
    delta is depolarization ratio.

    How is scatterred direction angle taken for the measurement of VSF i.e. in what range of angles(0, 90,....etc)?
