Paper Abstract

Backscattering of light by hexagonal ice columns and plates has been calculated by means of a ray-tracing code. It is shown that backscattering by the hexagonal ice cylinders at their arbitrary orientations is caused by a peculiar corner- reflector effect. The backscattered wave consists of a number of plane-parallel beams that do not intersect in the near zone of the particles.
