Thermal Microwave Radiation of Disperse Systems on the Sea Surface
Following from: Radiative transfer problems in nature and engineering
The theoretical models for thermal radiation of various disperse systems considered in the book are general and can be employed in both the visible and infrared spectral ranges. The rigorous electromagnetic scattering theory for single particles is universal and the Mie solution for spherical particles is used in the radio-wave range, too (see the articles, Radiative properties of metal particles in microwave spectral range and Water droplets and bubbles in microwave spectral range). The radiation transfer theory also does not have any wavelength restrictions. At the same time, application of the radiation transfer theory in the radio-wave range is accompanied by the following principal difficulties:
As a rule, the collective effects due to coherent scattering by ...
