The absorption coefficient aabs and the single scattering albedo L are theoretically investigated at different wavelengths in the IR range for the scattering volume consisting of the system of oriented ice plates. An approximation algebraic formula is derived for aabs . It is shown that aabs in the IR range duplicates all the peculiarities of fine structure in the dependence of ice absorption coefficient on the wavelength and becomes comparable to the scattering coefficient. It is found that L being identically equal to 1 in the visible range, can take the values from the interval 0.5–0.8 in the IR range.
