Abstract

Multi-field of view multiple-scattering polarization lidar (MFMSPL) has been developed to measure enhanced backscattering and depolarization ratio from optically thick clouds. Collocated cloud radar observations and Monte Carlo simulations supported the system performance such as cloud detectability and values of depolarization ratio. The system is used to evaluate/improve algorithms for space-borne lidar such as CALIOP on CALIPSO and ATLID on EarthCARE.
