Ground-based and space-borne multiple scattering lidar returns from arbitrary oriented particles including polarization considerations and wide-angle imaging

Objective

The objective of the project is to combine the separated analytical and experimental data concerning lidar sounding of clouds into a self-consistent theory. This theory will contain the new analytical and numerical methods for solutions to the direct scattering problems where the lidar returns are calculated for different types of lidars and for water-drop, ice crystal and mixed clouds. The second part of the theory is development of analytical and numerical solutions for the inverse scattering problem where the optical and microphysical parameters of clouds are retrieved from the multiply scattered lidar returns. Analytical approximations and numerical modelling of optical parameters of the atmospheric clouds will be developed as well.
