Paper Abstract

The paper is devoted to investigation of evolution of angular distribution of electromagnetic waves intensity in a thick layer of a random statistically anisotropic medium. The medium anisotropy is caused by the presence of prolate random inhomogeneities of the refraction index oriented along the normal to the medium boundary. Oblique and normal illumination of the medium by plane electromagnetic wave and wave beam is considered. The characteristic gap in the wave intensity angular distribution is detected. The investigation is made by Monte-Carlo simulation as well as by solution of the beam intensity equation.
