Parameters in the investigation of conservative Rayleigh scattering in plane-parallel atmospheres.

Optical thickness, τ:
0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32
Lambert surface albedo, rg:
0, 0.25, 0.8
Cosine of solar polar angle (SPA):
0.1, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 0.92, 1
Cosine of observer polar angle (OPA):
0.02, 0.06, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, 0.64, 0.84, 0.92, 1
Azimuth between solar and observer planes, Δφ:
0, 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180°

Notes. The total number of test cases amounts to 12 × 3 × 7 × 9 × 7 = 15 876. Throughout the exercises of Sects. 3.1 and 3.2, we assumed an atmospheric single scattering albedo ϖ ≡ 1.
