A universal Monte Carlo algorithm has been developed and studied numerically for solving problems associated with the optical tomography of the translucent atmosphere. The algorithm has wide possibilities and makes it possible to solve complicated tomographic problems which are inaccessible to the other methods described in literature. In particular, this method allows one to take account of the spatial structure of the extinction coefficient field, the object need not be convex, requirements for the smoothness of the emission and absorption coefficients are unimportant, the total number of the needed projection data is not great, whereas the noise level may be significant, etc. The results of the calculations are illustrated by specific examples.
