The current status of research on coherent phenomena in multiple light scattering from disordered systems is reviewed. The coherent light backscattering, temporal and spatial correlations of intensity of light propagating through a randomly inhomogeneous medium, and coherent effects due to the multiple scattering from very rough surfaces are considered. The present-day theories as well as methods and results of experimental studies are outlined. Almost all theoretical predictions are found to be illustrated well by respective experimental data.
