This paper reviews the theoretical formulations for exact and approximate methods based on the small-angle approximation solutions of the radiative transfer equations for laser beam propagation in dense spherical particles; for example, fog and clouds. Numerical results will be given for multiple scattering effects as functions of optical depth, detector field of view and detector's aperture size for typical cases of clouds. Results will also be given for contributions from the various orders of scattering.
