1. Introduction Infrared radiation (IR) is a physical process that plays a prominent role in atmospheric physics—especially through interaction with clouds. It is the most important physical phenomenon that drives radiation fog formation ( Davis 1994 ). To study atmospheric radiation, the question arises whether to adopt a 1D, 2D, or 3D approach to compute radiative transfer (RT). Many sophisticated treatments of the radiative transfer equation (RTE)—Monte Carlo method (MCM) ( Fleck 1961 ) for

promise in simulating atmospheric radiation more accurately and efficiently. However, there are still unresolved issues surrounding gaseous transmission in climate models. In this work we focus on two of these unresolved problems. The first is the overlapping of solar and infrared spectra. In almost all radiation models the shortwave and longwave portions of atmospheric radiation are treated separately due to the different transfer properties within each wavelength range. Usually the solar (shortwave

) reported that optically thin cirrus clouds with visible optical depths less than 1.4 were found in 20% of the HIRS data from 1979 to 2001. The effect of cirrus clouds on the energy balance of the earth–atmosphere system is a topic of critical importance because on the one hand, they affect solar radiation, referred to as the albedo effect, and on the other hand, they trap a significant amount of thermal infrared radiation emitted from the atmosphere below and the surface, referred to as the greenhouse
