Rayleigh scattering; noun
the scattering of light by particles in a medium, without change in wavelength. It accounts, for example, for the blue color of the sky, since blue light is scattered slightly more efficiently than red.

Mie scattering; noun
the scattering of light by particles that are large relative to the wavelength of the light. It accounts, for example, for a hazy white sky.
