The classical statement of the problem on characteristics of a light field arising in a bounded layer of a homogeneous medium under exposure to a parallel optical beam is considered. From statistical Monte Carlo experiments, conditions are determined for appearance of a nonmonotonic dependence of the absorbed energy, as well as light fluxes scattered into both hemispheres (from the source and in the backward direction), on the depth of radiation penetration into the medium. The reaction of these characteristics and the angular distributions of the radiation scattered inside the medium to variations of the surface albedo is studied. Interpretation is given to the obtained dependences.
