Investigation of the optical characteristics of cirrus clouds with anomalous backscattering
- 67 Downloads
Data of polarization laser sensing of high-level clouds obtained within the year from April, 2011 are processed. Attention is focused on cirrus clouds with anomalous reflection. The optical thickness and average extinction coefficient of cirrus clouds comprising horizontally oriented crystals are estimated for sensing radiation with different polarization states.
