Abstract
Since 2010, the Lidar MARTHA at TROPOS permits the retrieval of microphysical properties of liquid-water clouds during nighttime by estimations of the multiple scattering effects with the so called dual-FOV Raman technique. A recent lidar single-FOV depolarization approach which permits the retrieval of these properties as well, was implemented in the MARTHA system. Additionally, a new simple dual-FOV depolarization approach was developed and tested in the lidar measurement for several cloud periods. The first preliminary retrieval results and a comparison between the three methods are presented.
