Atmospheric Neutral Points over Water

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The positions of the neutral points of the skylight are computed for the model of a Rayleigh atmosphere and a smooth water surface that reflects light specularly according to the Fresnel law. The Babinet and Brewster points disappear from the principal plane. They appear within a few degrees below the almucantar near the direction of the sun. The Arago point does not disappear from the principal plane but is shifted closer to the horizon.
