Paper Abstract

In studies of the laser light propagation in fog, cloud, rain, etc. as the start point is used to be Mie theory of single scattering. However, this theory fails under the conditions of low—visibility, because the process of scattering is strong and the probability of multiple scattering cannot be neglected. The task of this contribution is twofold: 1. To evaluate significance of the numerical error due to the neglecting of multiple scattering during of modelling of transmission function of dense aerodispersive system, 2. To find criteria for the specification of the parameters of laser beam, detection system, and aerodispersive screen, when this neglecting is acceptable.
