Paper 1: Method for Aureole Estimation Refinement Through Comparisons Between Observed Aureole and Estimated Aureole Based on Monte Carlo Ray Tracing
Abstract: Method for aureole estimation refinement through comparisons between observed aureole and estimated aureole based on Monte Carlo Ray Tracing: MCRT is proposed. Through some experiments, it is found that the proposed method does work for refinement of aureole estimation. The experimental results also show the proposed method is validated through comparison with empirical aureole estimation equation which is proposed by Shebrooke University research group.
