Abstract:

The study shows the results of retrieving the fraction of quazi-horizontally oriented ice plates in a cirrus cloud of randomly oriented ice columns from the data of simultaneously sounding Raman lidar and ceilometer. It is show that in the case of absence of a layer of quasi-horizontally oriented particles the perpendicular and parallel components of the backscatter coefficient of vertically oriented Raman lidar coincide up to a constant factor with the backscatter coefficient of 5° inclined ceilometer. If quazi-horizontally oriented plates appear in a cloud, the fraction of the plates and the flutter angle can be retrieved from the difference of the backscattering coefficient profiles with help of the extinction coefficient profile.

Keywords:

quazi-horizontally oriented ice plates, cirrus clouds, physical optics, light scattering, ice crystals
