Abstract : Measurements were made on the infrared and visible reflection properties of cirrus (ice) clouds formed at Old Faithful Geyser. All data have been correlated with meteorological parameters and the solar scattering angle. Changing from 180 to 5 degrees scattering angle caused a 100 times increase in radiance at 2.9 microns. No differences were noted between water drop and ice particle clouds, except for intense specular reflections (the undersun) from ice plate fogs. (Author)
