Paper Abstract

We present the results of statistical simulation of upward flux of thermal scattered radiation in a wide range of variations of characteristics of aerosol extinction and scattering both in the atmospheric boundary layer and in the stratosphere. We carry out this simulation in case of spatially homogeneous Lambertian surface using the Monte Carlo method. We consider the effect of aerosol upon scattered radiance, characteristics of the adjacency effect as well as the accuracy of both the single scattering approximation and the conservative scattering model.
