Two possible ways of determining the preferred orientation of ice crystal cloud particles, without resorting to direct measurements of total backscattering phase matrix, are theoretically justified. One way is to rotate the whole lidar, and another is to rotate the plane of linear polarization of laser transmitter of the lidar.
