The main goals of this workshop are to:

discuss the progress in developing single scattering databases:

  • Definition of scattering data structure and conventions
  • Scattering database interface tools
  • Scattering database repository

their applications:

  • Bulk scattering properties
  • Scattering approximations
  • Particular requirements for passive and active applications
  • Guidelines and best practices for database users

and to bridge the gap between scattering and microphysical properties of snow:

  • In-situ properties of ice and snow particles
  • Observational constraints for scattering datasets
