The directional hemispherical and bidirectional reflectance and transmittance are presented for a conservative anisotropic scattering medium. Collimated incident radiation and linear anisotropic scattering are considered so that the azimuthal dependence must be retained. The effects of optical thickness, anisotropic scattering, incident angle, polar angle, and azimuthal angle are presented in a closed-form approximate solution. Comparisons with exact solutions are also presented.
