The Monte Carlo method has been used to obtain the temporal and amplitude characteristics (TAC)of pulsed radiation transmitted through a cloudy layer in the case of perpendicular incidence of a wide unidirectional beam. TAC for the radiation intensity as a function of the angle of observation and for the radiation power with different angles of reception for optical thicknesses τ≤50 are obtained. The character of these dependences is mainly determined by the presence of two components of radiation -- diffuse and small-angle, which have different temporal scales and angular dependences.
