Abstract

This study proposes a simple estimation method for the albedo, which is one of the radiative properties of scattering and absorbing media. The method enables us to determine the albedo from the measured emittance of the medium without a complicated inverse analysis, using the relation that the emittance of the optically thick medium depends only on the albedo when the scattering occurring in the medium is assumed to be isotropic. This study also deals with a measurement method for the emittance of the scattering and absorbing medium, which is necessary to estimate the albedo, and demonstrates the validity and the usefulness of both the measurement method for the emittance and the estimation method for the albedo.
