The paper is devoted to the investigation of the propagation of optical radiation and its distortion in Earth's atmosphere. We discuss main types of transformation mechanisms of optical signals connected with molecular, aerosol, and whirligig light scattering, as well as ways of their description and application for modelling the effect of the real atmosphere. The FCC (frequency-contrast characteristics) expression for the atmosphere is derived for further practical application in the atmosphere correction of ERS (Earth Remote Sensing) data. A qualitative analysis of the FCC expression is made.
