Pat Arnott, ATMS 749 Atmospheric Radiation Transfer Figure 13: Heat map (within white box) of the thermally active field of fractures in saturn’s moon Enceladus, measured at wavelengths between 12 and 16 micrometres, superimposed on a visual-light image. One of the four fractures (right) was only partially imaged. (wikipedia). Ch 13: Radiative Transfer with Multiple Scattering. Primer: Saturn’s Moon Enceladus. How do we know if it’s water vapor, ice particles, or liquid water? Why do we use this wavelength range? Why not use visible or UV?

Pat Arnott, ATMS 749 Atmospheric Radiation Transfer Two Stream Approximation: Multiple Scattering in 1 dimension. h, ground level 0, top of atmosphere z z + dz arbitrary layer dz I ↓ (z) I ↑ (z) I ↓ (z+dz)I ↑ (z+dz)  ext dz =  abs dz +  sca dz. P ↓↑ = P ↑ ↓. P ↑ ↑ = P ↓ ↓.  ext dz = Probability a photon undergoes extinction in dz.  abs dz = Probability a photon is absorbed in dz.  sca dz = Probability a photon is scattering in dz. P ↓↑ = P ↑ ↓ = Probability a downward photon is scattered up, and vica versa. P ↑ ↑ = P ↓ ↓ = Probability an upward photon is scattered up, and vica versa. P ↓↑ + P ↑ ↑ = 1 ⇒ all of the choices for a scattered photon in 1 dimension.

Pat Arnott, ATMS 749 Atmospheric Radiation Transfer Relationships for Extinction, Scattering, Absorption, and the Single Scatter Albedo: Coupled de’s for the fluxes. Fundamental equations we use for everything. Fluxes are coupled by scattering.

Pat Arnott, ATMS 749 Atmospheric Radiation Transfer Homework Problem: Aerosol Indirect Effect Reproduce the figure on the next slide using the simple model with absorption for the values of  = 1 and  ≠1. Calculate the cloud albedo as a function of effective radius and liquid water path for single scattering albedo equal to 1.0, and 0.95. In the second problem, assume that the absorption is caused by black carbon aerosol embedded in the cloud. Calculate the absorption coefficient necessary to give the value of the single scattering albedo as a function of the liquid water path. Comment on the likelihood of observing these absorption coefficients. Finally, comment on how aerosol light absorption impacts the aerosol indirect effect (i.e. the increased cloud albedo because of smaller more numerous droplets). Note: the mean free path of photons between scattering events is = 1 /  sca. T dir = exp(-  ext h)= exp(-  ) = probability that photons pass through the general medium without interaction with the scatterers and absorbers. (Ballistic, unscattered photons useful for imaging in scattering medium with fast lasers that can gate out scattered photons that arrive later due to their larger path length).

Journal of Climate, 7/1/98, Vol. 11 Issue 7, p1516. Does this make sense? Why? How do things change when the single scattering albedo is not equal to 1, and absorption happens?

Pat Arnott, ATMS 749 Atmospheric Radiation Transfer Weirdest thing (study the A g = 1 case, R + T = 1 conservative case) I ↓ (0)≡I 0 R T ground has reflectance, (or albedo) = A g =1 in this case.

Radiation is ‘trapped’ between the cloud and ground. A very small amount is reflected besides the first reflection. Energy is conserved because In = Out, or 1 = R total Let R=0.99. With 100 photons incident, 99 immediately reflect upwards and are lost. One photon passes through and reflects 99 times between the ground and cloud before being lost by transmission to the upward direction. This is the basis of an optical buildup cavity and integrating spheres.
