The author's algorithm and computer code for simulating solar diffuse radiation in the Earth's atmosphere is described, which includes calculations of derivatives with respect to atmospheric and surface parameters. The code is used for analysis of variations of outgoing radiation intensity depending on atmospheric parameter variations as the first step in investigation of the information content of space measurements of Earth's limb brightness aiming at retrieval of atmospheric aerosol parameters. Some calculated results, their analysis, and basic conclusions are presented.
