Short summary
The database contains the complete (polarimetric) scattering information for different types of ice particles at different incident and scattered radiation directions at four microwave wavelengths. These results are useful for understanding the dependence of ice-particle scattering properties on ice-particle orientation with respect to the incident and scattered radiation. It is also useful in ice-property retrievals, radar forward simulation.
