7 According to current understanding, the coherent backscattering mechanism plays a role in the generation of both the observed brightness and polarization phase relations, while shadowing should contribute mainly in determining the brightness opposition effect. 7 Theoretical studies are also complemented by laboratory experiments. In this respect, many authors have produced very useful measurements in the past. Based on laboratory data, it seems that both the depth of the branch of negative polarization and the value of the inversion angle strongly depend on the albedo and microscopic inhomogeneity of the investigated material samples, as well as on their packing density.

Discussions The results of the microwave observations of temperature and wind in the Martian mesosphere are compared with the GCM simulations. The wind velocity was directly measured from Doppler shifts of CO lines. We emphasize that these wind data obtained from the microwave measurements are unique for the Martian atmosphere. The descending landers (Viking and Mars Pathfinder) performed the only other available wind measurements. The simulated temperature in the Martian mesosphere is considerably higher than shown by the JCMT microwave data.
