Abstract : Diffusion of radiation in an atmosphere of great optical thickness at an arbitrary indicatrix of scattering is considered. The case of an atmosphere of large optical thickness and small true absorption has been considered and expressed in terms of similar quantities in the case of semi-infinite medium with pure scattering.
