Abstract: 

The evolution of phenomenological and microphysical approaches to radiative transfer (RT) and directional radiometry (DR) is outlined. The importance of the seminal 1887 paper by Eugen von Lommel is discussed. It is shown that owing to recent advances, the disciplines of RT and DR have finally become legitimate branches of statistical electromagnetics.
