Abstract:

A one-dimensional planar model of the atmosphere-ocean system, with multi-layer clouds illuminated by a mono-directional parallel flux of solar radiation, is considered. A new approach to radiation transfer modelling and daylight background formation for the atmosphere is proposed, with clouds represented as a heterogeneous multi-layer system, each layer of which is described by different optical characteristics. The influence functions of each layer are determined by solutions of the radiation transfer boundary problem with an external mono-directional wide, flux with the contribution of multiple scattering and absorption in the layer taken into account. Such a problem is analogous to the widely known problem for the plane layer with an external solar flux, the solution of which is not difficult and can be found by various well-known methods.
