Angular distribution of the multiply scattered light is studied based on the results of solving the radiation transfer equation by the method of spherical harmonics for different aerosol optical parameters in the visible wavelength range. Simple approximation formulas are derived that allow one to isolate the aerosol scattering phase function from the brightness phase function observed. Some practical recommendations are given on using them for solving some applied problems.
