The reports devoted to the investigations of the general behavior of spatial distribution and variability of microstructure and radiative characteristics of the clouds are reviewed. The role of the interaction between the clouds and radiation as one of the main factors of climate formation is analyzed in detail. The possibilities of parameterization of the processes of cloud formation for the climatic models are discussed. The results of satellite observations of stratospheric aerosol and Polar stratospheric clouds are considered.
