Abstract

The influence of the optical interaction of clouds on the radiation fluxes in the atmosphere is studied. A model and a method for calculating the magnitude of the radiation interaction under multiple re-radiation between clouds are proposed. It is shown that the radiation interaction depends in a complex way on the optical and geometric dimensions of the clouds and their optical parameters. It is established that for certain optical sizes of clouds the radiation interaction between them is maximal. The position of the maximum of the radiation interaction between the clouds is determined by the scattering phase function radiation: with an increase in the degree of elongation of the scattering phase function, the maximum moves to the region of large optical thicknesses.
