Paper Abstract

Light scattering by hexagonal ice columns and plates is considered within the framework of both the geometric optics and physical optics approaches. The vicinity of the backward scattering direction that is of interest for lidar measurements is discussed in details. It is shown that the angular distribution of the backscatter reveals a fine interference structure.
