The state and the prospects of the radiative transfer theory in inhomogeneous clouds are discussed. Urgent problems of atmospheric optics are emphasized. It is shown that for developing the radiation parameterizations and solving remote sensing problems, the stochastic geometry and inhomogeneous internal cloud structure should be adequately taken into account.
