Abstract

We have measured the Kubelka-Munk scattering and absorption coefficients for a barium sulfate white reflectance standard. These measurements have been based on measurements of the absolute reflectance for the particular barium sulfate samples whose scattering and absorption coefficients were measured. This method gives results that are different from earlier measurements; the differences are significant for measurements of the optical properties of atmospheric aerosols.
