This paper is concerned with the study and description of light scattering in turbid material such as paper. We present a new modeling approach, which is based on the transport theory. A statistical description for the scattering and absorption behavior inside the material is used to obtain spatial distributions of wavelength dependent photon number density and fluxes. Opposed to previous methods, the new approach can account for complex multi-point statistics of the material properties in an efficient and general way. This is achieved by solving a model equation for photon number density and propagation direction distribution. The present method is able to account for the spacial distribution of specific, wavelength dependent scattering and absorption characteristics. Thereby, it offers a general framework which allows to predict for example the appearance of colors in halftone prints.
