Abstract [en]

The upwelling atmospheric radiation in the millimeter wave spectral range is influenced by the presence of cirrus clouds. A plane parallel radiative transfer model which can take into account the effect of multiple scattering by ice particles in the cirrus has been developed and is used to simulate the brightness temperatures as they would be measured by a satellite instrument. The model uses an iterative procedure to solve the radiative transfer equation. The formulation of the model is such that it can easily be adapted to treat the full specific intensity vector instead of just the scalar total intensity. A convergence test for the model is explained and two cirrus cloud scenarios are simulated. The results illustrate the linearity of microwave radiative transfer for not too strong cirrus clouds in this frequency region
