WP 3200 - Implementation of polarization in MYSTIC solver

Some example results

Simulation of polarized sky radiances

The following figures show simulated Stokes components and the degree of polarization for down-welling radiation at 350 nm for a solar zenith angle of 30°.

Rayleigh scattering atmosphere

The following calculations are without Rayleigh scattering, only with aerosol or cloud scattering.

Water soluble aerosol (effective particle radius: ~0.15 μm, optical thickness 0.4)

Sea salt aerosol effective particle radius: ~1 μm, optical thickness 0.4)

Water cloud (effective particle radius: 10 μm, optical thickness 1)

Three-dimensional simulation for LES cumulus cloud field
