In this paper models from the first paper are generalized so that they include the correlation of attenuation coefficients and coverages with emulsion depth. They avoid further assumptions and can provide physically meaningful parameters (as opposed to earlier studies); thus closer agreement with experimental measurements is obtained. The difficulty in estimating correlated overlap functions is discussed. Error estimates resulting from grain statistics are generalized and computed in a
