multiple-scattering

Radiative transfer in which more than one scattering event may be of importance before transmission, reflection, or absorption.

Multiple-scattering is the dominant effect on the transfer of solar radiation within clouds, giving rise to diffuse radiation.
Compare single-scattering.
