An exact solution for the intensity due to a pulse radiation on the free surface of a semiinfinite medium with a known surface reflectivity is obtained via the multiple collision method. The time-dependent scalar intensity at the free surface is evaluated for several reflectivities and albedos using the corresponding steady state solution.
