Thermal emission from a surface

Thermal emission from a surface

be the emitted

energy from a flat surface of temperature Ts , within the solid angle dw in the direction W. A blackbody would emit Bn(Ts)cosqdw. The spectral directional emittance is defined as

  • Let

Thermal emission from a surface1

Thermal emission from a surface

  • In general e depends on the direction of emission, the surface temperature, and the frequency of the radiation. A surface for which eis unity for all directions and frequencies is a blackbody. A hypothetical surface for which e = constant<1 for all frequencies is a graybody.

Flux emittance

Flux emittance

  • The energy emitted into 2p steradians relative to a blackbody is defined as the flux or bulk emittance

Absorption by a surface

Absorption by a surface

  • Let a surface be illuminated by a downward intensity I. Then a certain amount of this energy will be absorbed by the surface. We define the spectral directional absorptance as:

  • The minus sign in -Wemphasizes the downward direction of the incident radiation

Absorption by a surface1

Absorption by a surface

  • Similar to emission, we can define a flux absorptance

  • Kirchoff showed that for an opaque surface

  • That is, a good absorber is also a good emitter, and vice-versa

  • If the incident light is direct sunlight then

Collimated Incidence - Specular reflectance

  • Here the reflected intensity is directed along the angle of reflection only.

  • Hence q’=q and f=f’+p

  • Spectral reflection function rS(n,q)

  • and the reflected flux:

  • Kirchoff’s Law for volume absorption and Emission

Differential equation of radiative transfer

Differential equation of Radiative Transfer

  • Consider conservative scattering - no change in frequency.

  • Assume the incident radiation is collimated

  • We now need to look more closely at the secondary ‘emission’ that results from scattering. Remember that from the definition of the intensity that

Differential equation of radiative transfer1

Differential Equation of Radiative Transfer

  • The radiative energy scattered in all directions is

  • We are interested in that fraction of the scattered energy that is directed into the solid angle dwcentered about the direction W.

  • This fraction is proportional to

Differential equation of radiative transfer2

Differential Equation of Radiative Transfer

  • If we multiply the scattered energy by this fraction and then integrate over all incoming angles, we get the total scattered energy emerging from the volume element in the direction W,

  • The emission coefficient for scattering is

Differential equation of radiative transfer3

Differential Equation of Radiative Transfer

  • The source function for scattering is thus

  • The quantity s(n)/k(n) is called the single-scattering albedo and given the symbol a(n).

  • If thermal emission is involved, (1-a) is the volume emittance e.
