Monitoring the Optical Stability of the Atmosphere for Small and Large Optical Thicknesses
The brightness of the sky on the solar almucantar is chiefly determined by the following parameters [1, 2]: the solar zenith distance z⊙, the optical thickness of the atmosphere τ 1 and the albedo of the underlying surface q, and it is greatly dependent upon the form of the scattering indicatrix.
