Paper Abstract

The paper is dealt with the laws of radiative transport within space limited scattering mediums depending on optical dimensions of a cloud and its micro physical properties. Detected was the range of application for infinitely extended dispersion medium and meanings of optical thicknesses at which the medium can be regarded as unlimited. In accordance with these results the authors conclude the nebulosity influences the radiation balance of the atmosphere depending on the cloud distribution according to their optical dimensions.
