Polarization of light in the atmosphere and ocean
In this chapter, we will present a brief history of polarization, a short description of the Stokes parameter–Mueller matrix representation of polarized light, and techniques for using polarization for remote sensing of both the atmosphere and the ocean. For a collection of the diverse applications of polarization, the reader is referred to the excellent books by Gehrels (1974) and Mishchenko et al. (2010).
