Paper Abstract

The lidar equation with consideration of multiple scattering in the small-angle approximation is analyzed in the present work. To describe a lidar signal, a model of the scattering phase function represented by the sum of diffraction and geometric-optics components is used. A method for separating the diffraction and geometric-optics lidar signal components is suggested. It is shown that for large field-of-view angles of the receiver, this allows the diffraction component of the scattering phase function to be replaced by one parameter -- the effective radius of particles.
