We report an analysis of the hemispherical reflectance of composite slabs made up of two porous layers. To allow realistic modeling of most porous materials, anisotropic scattering is considered. The reflectance is obtained by using the method of spherical harmonics to solve the equation of transfer. Results from the P-11 approximation are presented for a wide range of governing parameters, including the single-scattering albedos and scattering phase-function coefficients for both porous layers. The effects of anisotropic scattering are illustrated.
