This first coherent book on 3D radiative transfer provides a stand–alone, comprehensive treatment of 3–D radiative transfer in cloudy atmospheres and other situations. It addresses the huge task of understanding 3–D radiative transfer methods, stepping from 1–D to 2–D and then 3–D, before going on to illustrate applications in the atmospheric and surface radiation budgets, as well as the remote sensing of cloud, aerosol, and surface properties.

While highly recommended as essential reading for a master course in meteorology with an emphasis on radiative transfer, researchers in atmospheric radiation and remote sensing are equally likely to come to rely on this text.
