    Abstract

    It is of interest to determine the information that may be obtained from polarimetric radars on cloud ice crystals, which naturally have a large variety of shapes and sizes. Measurements within continental convective clouds showed that 90% of the first ice crystals were double plate crystals. The scattering parameters of the crystal from double plate showed the most dramatic differences at the 94 and 220 GHz as a result of shape and resonance scattering effects. At 220 GHZ, linear depolarization ratio has a peak while differential reflectivity and copolarized correlation coefficient have a minima between elevation angles of 50° and 60°. At 94 GHz, the parameters either increase or decrease monotonically.
