Abstract

Experimental and numerical simulation tests have been performed on an inverse radiative transfer algorithm designed to estimate the Legendre moments of the single-scatter phase function. The algorithm makes use of time-resolved measurements of the backscattered radiance from a plane-geometry semi-infinite medium. It was shown possible, even in the presence of experimental noise, to estimate the single-scatter albedo with a relative error of < 1%. Estimates of the asymmetry factor were found to be less accurate (< 12%) and estimates of higher moments to be impractical.
