Modeled integrated scatter tool (MIST)


The MIST program has been developed to provide users with a general application to model an integrated scattering system. The program performs an integration of the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) over solid angles specified by the user and allows the dependence of these integrals on model parameters to be investigated. The models are provided by the SCATMECH library of scattering codes.
