Abstract

We present algorithms for fast computation of phase functions of atmospheric clouds and for stochastic simulation of such optical phenomena as fogbows, glories, coronas and halos. Using the developed numerical algorithms and software, we analyze optical phenomena for several cloud and fog models.
