A Poisson model of multilayer broken clouds with correlations between layers is proposed. We discuss the results of a numerical experiment, in which the radiative characteristics of two-layer clouds are calculated by the Monte Carlo method. It is shown that the correlation between cloud layers can substantially affect the mean radiative fluxes.
