Abstract An investigation is carried out into the effects of using different atomic models of the radiation scattering event with velocity-noncorrelated scattering (a physical process introduced in a previous paper). Special emphasis is placed on those models of the scattering event which lead to complete frequency redistribution in the radiation viewed by an observer at a large from the atmosphere being investigated. Of the three different models of the atomic radiation scattering event used, two were found to produce complete frequency redistribution. It is pointed out that the significance of the derivation of the mathematical forms describing complete frequency redistribution does not lie in the functional forms themselves, which have known and used with great effect for many years, but rather in the physical interpretation of the radiation scattering event which must be used to obtain the particular mathematical expressions.
