Abstract
An analytical solution for calculation of double Raman-Mie scattering in the presence of a cloud is suggested. The model includes the Raman-Mie and Mie-Raman scattering processes occurring in the cloud volume as well as integrated Raman scattering signal from air molecules along the laser pulse from lidar to the cloud base. The developed algorithm allows for the comparison of relative contribution of these processes to the total Raman-shifted lidar signal. For typical lidar and cloud parameters, double scattering is not negligible and its contribution to the Raman signal is around 20%.
