Paper Abstract

The paper presents results of numerical statistical simulations of experiments of ground-based sensing of cloud layers by terahertz linearly polarized radiation for certain wavelengths from the atmospheric transparency windows. Summarized results of many years’ field measurements of liquid droplet size distributions in temperate latitudes of the Earth and the distributions obtained by aircraft experiments off Great Britain’s coast are used in the scattering layer models. The models of the scattering medium take into account the vertical stratification of water vapor concentration in the atmosphere and the differences in cloud layer microstructure at the top and the base.
