By using the first-order iterative solution of vector radiative transfer in small albedo for a layer of nonuniformly-oriented, random, nonspherical scatterers, the Mueller matrix and coherency matrix are obtained. Eigenanalysis of the coherency matrix is numerically calculated. The eigenanalysis of the coherency matrix is proposed as a better method for identifying physical scattering mechanisms than direct inspection of the Mueller matrix. The functional dependence of polarimetric scattering is also discussed
