Abstract : During several experiments carried out in France, Ivory Coast and Spain, many icing cloud penetrations were performed at different levels with instrumented research aircraft. The paper describes the range and the frequencies of occurrence of the relevant icing parameters computed on the cloud scale and for different cloud types. Comparisons between microphysical parameters and meteorological radar signatures show the limitations of these radars when used as a means of locating icing clouds.
