Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the design of a ground based bistatic lidar that will allow the retrieval of the particle size from C1 clouds. Results of all orders of scattering and the Stokes vectors calculated from the PBS Monte Carlo simulation code for specific lidar geometry will be given. From the analysis of the polarization intensities, the extraction of cloud particle size parameters from such bistatic lidar seems feasible.
