Abstract

Numerical results for the backscattering cross section for large dielectric spheres of relative index of refraction 1.8 are presented in graphical form for values of ice from 6 to 20. For this particular range, the backscattering expressions, which are obtained after a Watson transformation, show that surface waves rather than the geometrical optics fields dominate. the agreement with the exact Mie series is excellent.
