Paper Abstract

An investigation of the characteristics of multiply-scattered lidar returns from homogeneous layres of nonspherical Chebyshev particles is presented. A Monte Carlo procedure has been employed to simulate lidar measurements in a ground-based configuration. Total detected power and depolarization of the return signal have been calculated for a variety of particle sizes and deformations, as well as for different fields of view of the instrument and optical thicknesses of the medium. As far as depolarization is concerned, particles characterized by a high backscattering depolarization ratio have shown a peculiar behavior in multiple scattering. Results have been checked, for double scattering, employing an analytical formula previously developed.
