This lesson covers the concept of reflectivity and transmittance in the context of layers that scatter light, such as insulation particles or cloud layers. It delves into the mathematical equations used to calculate upward and downward intensities, and how these can be solved using new variables. The lesson also explores the impact of variables such as albedo, angle, and path length on reflectivity. It further discusses the boundary conditions needed to solve for unknowns in the equations. The lesson concludes with an examination of the impact of asymmetric scattering on the overall reflectivity and transmittance of a layer.
