Paper Abstract

Spaceborne lidar systems yield the unique possibility to collect observation data with good horizontal and vertical resolution. However, due to the special geometry of space lidar measurements the return signals are much stronger influenced by multiple scattering effects. The amount of multiple scattering depends partly on system parameters. We show that the system characteristics have negligible influence on multiple scattering in observations of cirrus clouds. On the other hand for layers with stronger sideward scattering we found a considerable dependence of multiple scattering on the configuration of the lidar system.
