Specular reflection of optical radiation from an oriented plate is studied numerically as applied to bistatic polarization laser sensing of water ice crystal clouds. The equations for polarization characteristics and the scattering cross section are examined numerically depending on the orientation and refractive index of the particulate matter for the cases of polarized and unpolarized incident radiation. The regular dependence of light scattering characteristics on the crystal orientation is illustrated. Based on the results obtained, it is shown that the interpretation methods can be constructed for determining parameters of the medium under study.
