Abstract:

In this paper we present results of numerical modeling of radiation transfer in clouds and snowfall for stationary earth-based light sources. We study the following effects caused by multiple light reflection between Earth's surface and atmosphere with clouds and snowfall: an increase in the range of propagation for a point source and a possible intensification of the luminous flux near the surface.
