Paper Abstract

Monte Carlo method is a classical method to simulate the backscattered lidar signals, but its disadvantage is that the calculation efficiency is very low. Based on the traditional semianalytic Monte Carlo method, the new method use a distorted Henyey-Greenstein (H-G) function to approximate the scattering phase function, obtain the expression of the scattering angle (theta) from H-G function, and compte photoelectric transform according to the characteristic of photomultiple. From the calculation efficiency is improved greatly.
