The report presents an original algorithm for solving the radiation transfer equation based on the Monte Carlo method for problems of atmospheric laser sensing, taking into account the polarization of radiation. A number of test calculations were performed to analyze the data of the polarization scanning lidar of the V.E. Zuev Institute of Atmospheric Optics SB RAS. It is shown that the proposed algorithm, taking into account the polarization, makes it possible to reduce the discrepancy in
