Abstract
In this paper, we describe numerical and visualization software that allows one to compute phase functions of atmospheric water-drop clouds for an arbitrary distribution of drop radius and represent such optical phenomena as fogbows, glories and coronas. High performance and computational accuracy of the algorithms are provided by the use of a large array of data preliminarily calculated for monodisperse media, and numerical integration by high-order quadrature rules. The software has a user-friendly interface, which allows an interactive design of particle size distributions, simultaneous computation of phase functions for several wavelengths, and immediate visualization of possible optical phenomena.
