Paper Abstract

Multiangular methods for optical thickness of atmosphere determination from space are surveyed. Numerical investigations showed that the use of single scattering or two-stream approximation formulae in this case leads to unreliable results. New methods of complex solution the inverse problem including phase function estimating are reported. The results of `Salyut-7' orbit station data processing illustrate the power of multiangular experiments.
