Paper Abstract

In the problem of light scattering by ice crystals of cirrus clouds, a new quantity characterizing microphysics of the clouds is determined. This quantity appears at simultaneous use of lidar and radar signals reflected from the same cloud. The quantity is the ratio of the backscattering cross section averaged over a statistical crystal ensemble to the averaged crystal volume. It is shown that this new characteristics can be effective if it is used together with the color ratio for retrieving microphysics of quasi-horizontally oriented crystals
