About this book


The research reported in this monograph represents an attempt to explore the extreme values as well as the more probable values of the radiative characteristics of water and ice clouds in the solar wavelengths. It discusses topics such as monomodal drop size distributions, cloud thickness, cloud geometry, to the radiative characteristics of clouds and ice crystals.
