Abstract
The results of the investigation of radiation characteristics of cirrus consisting of crystalline ice particles with a preferred orientation are discussed. The orientation degree of particles is estimated from the backscattering phase matrices, which are determined with the high-altitude polarization lidar developed at National Research Tomsk State University. It is shown that the orientation of ice crystals in clouds with anomalously high backscattering affects significantly the transmission of solar radiation.
