Abstract
We have derived a lidar equation allowing for contribution from multiple scattering (MS) that enables one to describe polarization properties of the lidar returns. An algorithm is also proposed to reconstruct the profiles of scattering coefficient and lidar ratio (backscattering phase function) under conditions of a priori uncertainties. Some results are presented in the paper on retrieval of optical parameters of clouds from lidar return signals calculated by the Monte-Carlo method.
