Microphysical properties of mixed-phase & ice clouds retrieved from in situ airborne "Polar Nephelometer" measurements

Abstract : In this paper we present microphysical properties of natural clouds retrieved from an airborne "Polar Nephelometer" measurements. The retrieval was done by means of an iterative inversion method, which is based on the bi-component (water droplets and ice crystals) representation of ice and mixed phase cloud composition. The present study shows that experimental scattering phase functions of ice crystals are characterized by high information content with respect to the aspect ratio of ice crystals which can be estimated in addition to their effective size distributions.
