Abstract
Three microphysical backscatter ratios (color ratio, depolarization ratio, and lidar ratio) widely used for interpretation of lidar signals returned from cirrus clouds have been calculated for the first time. The physical-optics code developed earlier by the authors is applied. Though the data are obtained for the hexagonal ice plates and columns, that are the simplest crystal shapes, their arbitrary spatial orientation has been taken into account. The lidar experimental data measuring simultaneously the depolarization ratio and color ratio in cirrus clouds are also presented.
