Paper Abstract

We present original statistical algorithms for calculating brightness fields of upward and downward solar radiation in deterministic inhomogeneous clouds in the plane-parallel and spherical atmospheric models. Poisson model on the basis of point fluxes in space is used to simulate the cloud fields. We implemented a few modifications of the algorithms, differing in the methods for simulating free path length and accounting for the molecular absorption. Results of crosschecks of the developed modifications and estimations of their efficiency are presented.
