Abstract
We have adapted Coupled Escape Probability, a new exact method of 
solving radiative transfer problems, for use in asymmetrical 
spherical situations. Our model is intended specifically for use in 
modeling optically thick cometary comae, although not limited to 
such use. This method enables the accurate modeling of comets' 
spectra even in the potentially optically thick regions nearest the 
nucleus, such as those seen in Deep Impact observations of 
9P/Tempel 1 and EPOXI observations of 103P/Hartley 2.
