Inference of Scatterer Size Distribution from Single Scattering Matrix Data

  • William A. Pearce


We have studied procedures for inferring the scatterer size distribution from the polarization of scatter radiation. The information content of specific matrix element measurements is evaluated with assessments of the impact of the assumption of sphericity and other modeling errors as well as random measurement errors on the computed size distribution.
