Abstract

A curve-fitting procedure is shown to reduce the effects of random errors in estimations of the albedo of single scattering and the moments of the angular-scattering function from the backscattered radiance after a collimated pulsed illumination of a slab target. Numerical results are presented for the effects of a simulated broadening of the incident pulse in time and of systematic experimental errors on the estimated coefficients.
