Abstract:

A modified beam-splitting algorithm for solving the problem of light scattering on atmospheric concave ice crystals being typical for cirrus clouds is developed. It is based on the beam-splitting algorithm for convex crystals that was created at Institute of Atmospheric Optics SB RAS. The algorithm is used for the solution of the light scattering problem for hollow-column particles and hexagonal column aggregates. The algorithm is on open access with open source code.

Keywords:

algorithm, concave particles, aggregates, physical optics, geometrical optics, cirrus clouds
