"Rapid advances have been made in our knowledge of electromagnetic scattering by nonspherical particles, and the aim of this book is to 'provide a systematic state-of-the-art summary of the field.' Thirty-one authors contributed 20 papers (each a chapter), using a consistent notation and general outline, and there is a 71-page collective reference list at the end. The book will be of interest to a wide variety of geophysicists (and astronomers) working with scattering problems."
--BULLETIN OF THE AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY, May 2000
"An excellent survey that will enormously benefit novice and non-specialist researchers and constitute a useful reference source for experienced specialist researchers."
