Abstract:

In the paper we present the results of computational experiments aimed to define the angular distributions for the polarized radiation scattered in a cloudy layer. The angular distributions for Stokes parameters were computed by Monte Carlo method for different optical models of water-drop and crystal clouds. The ulterior objective of the research is to develop effective techniques to study the particles shape and size by measuring angular characteristics of the scattered radiation emanating from clouds.
