For years after large Plinian eruptionsthe blue cast of the sky is notably brightened by the persistent sulfate load of the stratospheric gases. Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the magnetic phenomenon, see Rayleigh law. The moonlit sky is not perceived as eespalhamento, however, because at low light levels human vision comes mainly from rod cells that do not produce any color perception Purkinje effect.

The fraction of light scattered by a group of scattering particles is the number of particles per espalhamejto volume N times the cross-section.

Calaméo – Espalhamento de Rayleigh

It is this scattered light that gives the surrounding sky its brightness and its color. Some of the scattering can also be from sulfate particles.

Rayleigh scattering is a good approximation of the manner in which light scattering occurs within various media for which scattering particles have a small size parameter. Retrieved 2 April The rwyleigh electric field of a light wave acts ryaleigh the charges within a particle, causing them to move at the same frequency.


Because the particles are randomly positioned, the scattered light arrives at a particular point with a random collection of phases; it is incoherent and the resulting intensity is just the sum of the squares of the amplitudes from each particle and therefore proportional to the inverse fourth power of the wavelength and the sixth power of its size.

For the wireless multipath propagation model, see Rayleigh fading. A portion of the beam of light coming from the sun scatters off molecules of gas and other small particles in the atmosphere. All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from October Articles with unsourced statements from January The reddening of the sun is intensified when it is near the horizon because the light being received directly from it must pass through more of the atmosphere.

InLord Rayleigh published two papers on the color and polarization of skylight to quantify Tyndall’s effect in water droplets in terms of the tiny particulates’ volumes and refractive indices. Retrieved from ” https: This article is about the optical phenomenon. It can occur when light travels through transparent solids and liquids, and is most prominently seen in gases.

Rayleigh scattering results from the electric polarizability of the particles.

The effect is further increased because the sunlight must pass through a greater proportion of the atmosphere nearer the earth’s surface, where it is denser.


Raayleigh from space, however, the sky is black and the sun is white. Scattering, absorption and radiative transfer optics Atmospheric optical phenomena Visibility Light. American Journal of Physics.

Rayleigh scattering

The particles may be individual atoms or molecules. Turner may owe their vivid red colours to the eruption of Mount Tambora in his lifetime. Gives a brief history of theories of why the sky is blue leading up to Rayleigh’s discovery, and a brief description of Rayleigh scattering.

Rayleigh scattering of sunlight in Earth’s atmosphere causes diffuse sky radiationwhich is the reason for the blue color of the daytime and twilight skyas well as the yellowish to reddish hue of the low Sun.

An example is the strong optical scattering by nanoporous materials. Silica fibers are glasses, disordered materials with microscopic variations of density and refractive index. Thermal radiation heat transfer. Some works of the artist J.

Inwhile attempting to determine whether any contaminants remained in the purified air he used for infrared experiments, John Tyndall discovered that bright light scattering off nanoscopic particulates was faintly blue-tinted.
