The dependence of Rayleigh scattering on A~4 is evident in Fig. 3.15, which shows the attenuation coefficient for Rayleigh scattering as a function of wavelength from 290 to 700 nm; shorter wavelengths (i.e., in the blue ultraviolet region) are scattered much more strongly than the longer wavelengths.
