Abstract

Surface roughness of atmospheric ice particles is an important yet poorly investigated microphysical property in the context of the climate impact of cirrus and mixed-phase clouds. Measurements of single particle two-dimensional light scattering patterns have been shown to be a promising method to identify particle roughness in natural clouds. This method was applied in a laboratory study on the surface roughness properties of small ice particles that have been grown under simulated cirrus conditions.
