    Abstract

    The potential use of millimeter wave radars for remotely probing clouds is under investigation. Several radars operating at 94 GHz are being tested for this purpose. To aid in the understanding and interpretation of the radar returns, it is important to evaluate the scattering properties of ice crystals and derive relationships between radar observables and bulk parameters such as ice water content (TWC). The latter is the focus of the present work. Pristine ice crystals in the form of hexagonal columns and hexagonal plates are used as models for deriving relationships between IWC and dual-polarization radar observables.
