Otterman, J., M. Dishon, and S. Rehavi, 1983: Point spread functions in imaging a Lambert surface from zenith through a thin scattering layer. Int. J. Remote Sens., 4, 583-599, doi:10.1080/01431168308948575.

Effects of cross radiance, i.e. of reflection from one area and scattering to the zenith over another area (the object pixel) with a different reflectivity, are computed and presented as point-spread functions. The analysis concerns imaging a planar terrain with Lambert law reflectivity, when viewed from the zenith through an optically and geometrically thin horizontal layer of scatterers. The Henyey-Greenstein phase function, with various values of the anisotropy factor g, is assumed for the scatterers. The characteristics of the point-spread functions depend markedly on the value of this anisotropy factor. Based on this analysis, spatial (surface) resolution, when effectively limited by the atmospheric cross radiance, is defined and computed.
