Basic Concepts, Equations and Problems
This introductory chapter discusses the scattering of radiation in a planetary atmosphere. Its results refer equally to the whole complex of physical problems described by the similar equations. Most of the equations and problems are formulated here for the case of an inhomogeneous stratified atmosphere whose optical properties depend on one spatial variable. Thus, throughout the book we will constantly refer to the formulas contained in this chapter.
