Paper Abstract

A ray-tracing code calculating the wave-zone scattered field in the problem of light scattering by large ice crystal particles of cirrus clouds has been developed. An output of the code is the Jones matrix for an arbitrary crystal orientation. Along with a pure Muller matrix obtained, a number of reduced Mueller for practical use are defined and discussed. Impact of wave interference on fine angular structure of the Stokes parameters in the wave zone is emphasized. This impact is illustated by a fine angular structure near the backward scattering direction for ice hexagonal columns and plates.
