We examine radiative transfer theory, which accounts for the multiple scattering of waves, in a layered medium composed of randomly placed thin beds excited by a 1D source.  ...  At its most basic level, radiative transfer predicts that the wavefield separates into a coherent, or wavelike, part and an incoherent, or diffusive, flow after a length scale known as a mean free path  ...  In Figure 6 , the solution of the diffusion equation asymptotically approaches, with time, the numerical intensities of the experiment.  ...
