Pre-conditioned backward Monte Carlo solutions to radiative transport in planetary atmospheres

García Muñoz, A.; Mills, F. P.


CONTEXT. The interpretation of polarised radiation emerging from a planetary atmosphere must rely on solutions to the vector radiative transport equation (VRTE). Monte Carlo integration of the VRTE is a valuable approach for its flexible treatment of complex viewing and/or illumination geometries, and it can intuitively incorporate elaborate physics. AIMS. We present a novel pre-conditioned backward Monte Carlo (PBMC) algorithm for solving the VRTE and apply it to planetary atmospheres...[Show more]
