Scattering Albedo

(Term of Optics)

The unitless ratio between the scattering coefficient and the absorption coefficient for a participating medium. An albedo of 0 means that the particles do not scatter light. An albedo of 1 means that the particles do not absorb light.

The Radiance software treats the red, green and blue components of the albedo seperately.
