Paper Abstract

Possibilities to retrieve the microphysical properties of cirrus clouds consisting of ice crystals from lidar and radar signals simultaneously reflected from the same cloud are discussed. It is stated that the measurements of the radar-lidar color ratio is promising. This ratio is easy calculated with the available data obtained in the physical-optics and discrete dipole approximations.
