Paper Abstract

The information borne by the characteristics of reflected optical radiation in the cases of single- or double-ended lidar is studied within the framework of a crystal cloud model as a system of oriented crystal plates. It is shown that the variation of the absolute and relative values of the scattering coefficient obtained at small-angle scanning carries the information about the size spectrum of crystal plates and their flutter in atmospheric formations with inhomogeneous composition.
