Exact Solution of the Inverse Scalar Radiative Transfer Problem in One-Dimensional Atmospheres

  • A. G. NikoghossianEmail author

The inverse scalar problem of radiative transfer in a ID atmosphere is solved analytically. It is shown, in particular, that not all combinations of the reflection and transmission coefficients r, q ≤1 can be physically significant.
