Paper Abstract

Natural land cover is not a perfect orthotropic surface reflecting sunlight. Most types of natural surfaces to a greater or lesser extent have the anizotropic properties. The assumption of a Lambertian reflectance can lead to biases in calculated radiative characteristics. We developed Monte Carlo three-dimensional radiative transfer code that allow for considering the detailed directional scattering properties of reflectance by land and ocean surface. The article deals with a number of semi-empirical and physically based models of the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) that determine the angular characteristics of reflection for snow, vegetation, soil and ocean cover and describes shortly principles of the radiance reflection simulation and the specifics of surface-atmosphere radiative interaction.
