[1] The polarized scattering signatures observed in convective cloud systems with the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Microwave Instrument are analyzed. In particular, and in contrast to the positive polarization difference (TbV-TbH > 0) observed when scattering by large ice particles is important, we also find a negative polarization difference. Radiative transfer simulations show that such a polarization difference can be explained by relatively large, mostly vertically oriented… CONTINUE READING
