Abstract
Cirrus clouds cover about 30% of the Earth surface and they essentially impact on the radiative budget of the Earth and, consequently, on the climate. This study investigated the properties of cirrus cloud by used observations obtained from the three-wavelength lidar system over Tomsk and Hefei. The backscatter ratios (polarization ratio, color ratio and lidar ratio) for cirrus cloud are compared with each other from these two regions. Some differences are found that are caused by aerosol conditions. These differences have been mitigated by use of the appropriate microphysical model.
