Paper Abstract

The problem of estimating the influence of homogeneous cloudiness on the signal received during observation of the Earth’s surface from a satellite system is considered for the Lambert reflection from the Earth’s surface. In calculations the Monte Carlo method with backward scheme of simulation of trajectories is used. The gap radii at which the influence of cloudiness decreases down to 10 % of the received radiance are found. A dependence of the radiance on the gap radius is obtained and explained.
