Paper Abstract

Lidar backscatter by hexagonal ice cylinders of cirrus clouds is considered within the framework of both geometric optics and physical optics approaches. Within geometric optics, reasons of great backscattering peak and of large magnitudes of the depolarization ratio are investigated and explained. An approach including diffraction and interference phenomena is discussed.
