Abstract

Scattering by particles significantly smaller than the wavelength is an important physical process in the rocky bodies in our solar system and beyond. A number of observations of spectral bluing (referred to in those papers as" Rayleigh scattering") on planetary surfaces have been recently reported, however, the necessary mathematical modeling of this phenomenon has not yet achieved maturity. This paper is a first step to this effect, by examining the effect of grain size and optical index on the albedo of small ...
