    Clouds consist of water particles (hydrometeors) in different aggregate states. Above the melting layer these hydrometeors are formed mainly as ice crystals and other completely or partly frozen particles. With measurements from the C-band dual polarimetric radar POLDIRAD (Oberpfaffenhofen,...

    We present recent progress related to the night-time retrievals of aerosol and cloud optical depth using star-photometry over the PEARL (Polar Environmental Atmospheric Research Laboratory) station at Eureka (Nunavut, Canada) in the High Arctic (80° N, 86° W). In the spring of 2011 and...

    In generalizing the Milne equation using the Wiener-Hopf method, the solution of the problem of multiple scattering by a medium with an isotropic single-scattering indicatrix for an arbitrary angle of incidence is found. The resulting solution is used as an initial approximation for calculating...

  • CALIPSO/CALIOP Cloud Phase Discrimination Algorithm. Hu, Yongxiang; Winker, David; Vaughan, Mark; Lin, Bing; Omar, Ali; Trepte, Charles; Flittner, David; Yang, Ping; Nasiri, Shaima L.; Baum, Bryan; Sun, Wenbo; Liu, Zhaoyan; Wang, Zhien; Young, Stuart; Stamnes, Knut; Huang, Jianping; Kuehn, Ralph; Holz, Robert // Journal of Atmospheric & Oceanic Technology;Nov2009, Vol. 26 Issue 11, p2293 

    The current cloud thermodynamic phase discrimination by Cloud-Aerosol Lidar Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) is based on the depolarization of backscattered light measured by its lidar [Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP)]. It assumes that backscattered light...

    A method has been devised and tested for measuring the c-axis orientation of crystal grains in thin sections of glacier ice. The crystal orientation and grain size of ice are of great interest to glaciologists since these parameters contain information on the prior thermal and flow history of...

    Ice streams provide major drainage pathways for the Antarctic ice sheet. The stress distribution and style of flow in such ice streams produce elastic and rheological anisotropy, which informs ice-flow modelling as to how ice masses respond to external changes such as global warming. Here we...

    From experiments with ice or metal crystals, in the vicinity of their crystal/liquid/vapor triple points, it is known that melting of crystals starts on their surfaces and is anisotropic. It is shown here by direct observations under an optical microscope that this anisotropic surface melting...
