Abstract

An approach for determining cirrus height with multiple scattering effect using data from a Mie scattering lidar is proposed. We compute the exact extinction coefficients of cirrus via altitude. The regulated height of cirrus is obtained through multiple scattering factors. Experimental result demonstrates that the proposed approach can be used to determine effectively cirrus height with multiple scattering.
