LCS-II project descriptionLidar Cirrus Studies II
SummaryIn this study measurements of atmospheric state parameters, particle size distribution, particle shape and concentration, and the various components of the radiation budget within cirrus clouds were measured. A ground-based polarization diversity lidar system was used to collect extensive backscatter and depolarization measurements for the cirrus clouds concurrently with Sabreliner measurements. The Sabreliner provided air-truth data of cloud contents to test the validity of the remote sensing findings recovered from the combined theoretical and measurement approach used in this study. This study is a continuation of Lidar Cirrus Studies.
