Abstract
In this paper, the calculation and the theoretical investigation of backscattering cross section were carried out as well as a lidar and linear depolarization ratios for the random oriented hexagonal ice columns. The right dihedral angle of the hexagonal ice column was distorted in a range from 0°(regular particle) to 50°. All calculations were obtained within the framework of the physical optics approximation. A wavelength of the incident light was assumed to be 1.064 μm, an index of refraction was taken as 1.3004. It has been shown that if the distortion of a right dihedral angle of the hexagonal ice column is larger than 10°, the secondary maximums in the backscattering cross section become observable due to a new type of the optical beams trajectory. Also, during the averaging over the particle distortion angle a linear depolarization ratio for the column could reach the value close to 0.7 relative units.
