Short summary
This paper presents first quantitative estimations of ice particle shape at the top of liquid-topped clouds. The estimation is based on polarimetric measurements from a Ka-band cloud radar. 22 cases observed during the ACCEPT (Analysis of the Composition of Clouds with Extended Polarization Techniques) campaign were used. Data from a free-fall chamber were used for the comparison. A good agreement of detected shapes with known shape–temperature dependencies observed in laboratories was found.
