Paper Abstract

The use of multiple scattering effects in lidar sounding of clouds permits to determine the extinction coefficient profile up to optical thicknesses of (tau) equals 8 - 10 and to measure the optical and geometric thicknesses of stratiform clouds up to (tau) equals 20. For this purpose a method of parameterization of multiple scattering contribution to a lidar signal as well as the lidar equation inversion procedure are discussed. The results of the field comparative experiments carried out are presented.
