In part I it was demonstrated that supercooled liquid-water clouds can occur in the form of thin but radiatively signiŽ cant layers that are distinctive in lidar imagery due to their high backscatter coefŽ cient. In this paper, 18 months of near-continuous lidar data from two midlatitude locations are analysed to estimate the frequency of occurrence of such clouds as a function of temperature. An algorithm is developed that uses the integrated backscatter to identify liquid-water clouds with a… CONTINUE READING
