Paper Abstract

Polar Stratospheric Clouds (PSC) appear in the polar zones of the Earth in the winter. These clouds are known to cause enhanced chemical ozone destruction. Methods for optical remote-sensing of PSC in use or under development at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics are discussed with respect to their advantages and limitations. Especially multistatic imaging may become a valuable additional tool for PSC studies.
