**Little difficulties in modeling**

Unfortunately, the parameters were different for the different fits, and “Simultaneous inversions of scattering matrices measured at two wavelengths (0.442 m and m) were not successful in that a reasonably good fit was not achieved. The root-mean-square (over all elements) fit for a single wavelength was about 7–10%, while for two wavelengths the root-mean-square fit did not drop below 20%.” from Dubovik et al. 2006: JGR 111, D11208 5

**Little difficulties in modeling**

Besides, the best fits are obtained with a mixture of highly oblate and prolate spheroids. However, the feldspar particles look highly irregular with aspect ratio being somewhat about 1. from Dubovik et al. 2006: JGR 111, D11208 6

**Laboratory measurements of single-scattering feldspar particles**

SEM image of feldspar Refractive index m is estimated to be in range m = 1.5– – i Size distribution is retrieved with the laser diffraction method Data adapted from Volten et al., 2001 10

**Modeling laboratory measurements of feldspar**

We consider the range of particle radii r from 0.21 m through 2.25 m at =0.442 m: x=3–32 at =0.633 m: x=2.1–22.3 SEM image of feldspar Size parameter: x = 2r/ Size distribution: r–2.9 Refractive index: m = i For each size parameter x, we consider a minimum of 500 samples of agglomerated debris particles in random orientations. This makes our analysis being statistically reliable! 11

Summary We model light-scattering response measured in feldspar particles at two wavelengths and m. We utilize model of agglomerated debris particles and compute light scattering with the discrete dipole approximation (DDA). Measurements can be satisfactorily reproduced under realistic assumptions on size distribution and refractive index of feldspar particles. Unlike spheroidal model, agglomerated debris particles can fit measurements at both wavelengths.
