8 November 2014 Optical properties of ice clouds: new modeling capabilities and relevant applications
Author Affiliations +
A combination of the invariant imbedding T-matrix (II-TM) method, the improved geometric-optics method (IGOM), and the pseudo-spectral time domain (PSTD) method provides advanced modeling capabilities to simulate the singlescattering properties of ice crystals for the entire size parameter range. The downstream applications of the singlescattering properties simulated from the new modeling capabilities, and, consequently, the bulk radiative properties render significant improvements, particularly, in remote sensing implementations involving ice clouds. Furthermore, the single-scattering properties of individual ice crystals are simulated. In addition, a sensitivity study is performed regarding the application of the single-scattering properties to remote sensing of ice cloud properties based on spaceborne observations.
