From the reviews: "This book was published as volume 34 of the Kluwer/Springer series `Atmospheric and Oceanographic Sciences Library'. ... I believe that this book will be a meaningful addition to any research library since it contains a nontrivial collection of useful facts, formulas, and references and is the first research-level specialized monograph on cloud optics and cloud remote sensing. Individual professional researchers should also consider buying a copy of the book for personal use ... . The polygraphic quality of the book is excellent." (Michael I. Mishchenko, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer, Issue 105, 2007)
