## Abstract

Simple formulations including scattering interaction up to the second order are developed for thin dielectric disks and thin dielectric cylinders representing vegetation leaves and stems. In the iterative approach, Rayleigh-Gans approximation is used to calculate the internal electric field, or equivalently the induced polarization current, of the particles. To calculate the second-order scatter field, the exact near fields from all nearby particles are calculated numerically and used as the excitation for the second-order induced polarization current. Second-order polarization current at any given point within the scatterer is determined using the appropriate probability tensor.
