Paper Abstract

In this paper we study the light scattering in water-drop clouds for various distributions of droplet size. Polarization and angular distributions are simulated by Monte Carlo method for radiation reflected by cloud layers. Computational results make it possible to develop procedures for analyzing the microphysical structure of clouds.
