Abstract
The results of floodlight sounding of atmospheric layers with spatio-oriented nonspherical particles are represented in this paper. It is shown that components obeying the regularities of diffuse scattering and specular reflection occur in the scattered radiation as a result of interaction of the directional optical radiation with such a layer. Depending on observational conditions the intensity of specularly reflected component may be several times higher than the intensity of radiation diffusely scattered in the same direction.
