Fig. 1


Emergent Stokes profiles formed in an optically thin medium shown as a function of wavelength for nearly tangential emergence μ = 0.47 × 10-2 (dotted line). The model parameters are T = 2 × 10-2,a = 10-3 = 0, and r = 0. A nearly vertical beam of radiation incident at μ′ = 0.995 is used as the lower boundary condition. In this case, the intensity is scaled up by a factor of 102 for comparison with the single scattered solution. The dashed line shows the emergent Stokes profiles computed for the single scattering case with the same value of scattering angle.
