Paper Abstract

In the paper the analyses of the lidar measurements data of optical parameters of the cirrus clouds over the Tomsk city are presented. The valuation of the microphysical properties of the cirrus clouds was done by the backscattering matrices that were measured by the high-altitude polarization lidar (wavelength is 0.532 μm) from National Research Tomsk State University in 2016-2018. For the interpretation of the laser sensing data we used the backscattering matrices database designed in V.E. Zuev Institute of Atmospheric Optics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Siberian Branch. An attempt to interpret the measured matrix using the quasi-horizontal orientated hexagonal columns with the 1000 μm modal size Lmod is incorrect in view of the fact that the particles with this size are very unlikely in existence of nature. It was demonstrated that the calculated backscattering matrices together with proposed algorithm could be used for the valuation of microphysical properties of the measured backscattering matrices.
