Paper Abstract

Light scattering characteristics by small ice particles modeled by polydisperse, randomly oriented, finite circular cylinders at both the visible, and near-infrared 1.38 micrometers wavelengths are investigated. The effects caused by an increase in aspect ratio and by changes in effective variance of particle size distributions are addressed. Comparison of our results with those calculated by Zakharova and Mishchenko (2000) shows that light scattering properties of small ice particles modeled by finite circular cylinders are different from those modeled by spheroids having the same aspect ratio. The results are significant in optical modeling and applications in remote sensing.
