Abstract
Time distributions of ground-based LIDAR echo-signals reflected by the bottom of a liquid droplets cloud were calculated with the help of local estimates of Monte Carlo methods for wavelengths from visible to submillimeter range. The calculations are performed for three models of clouds. In the first model the cloud layer consists only of small droplets of radius from 1 to 20 microns, in the second one there are small and large droplets of radius from 1 to 85 microns and in the third one we take into account small, large and supersize droplets. A density of a particle size distribution is generalized on results of cloud microstructure observations in temperate latitudes. Wavelength range for which one should take into account large and supersize droplets in cloud models is found.
