This letter proposes the use of solar background radiation scattered by ice clouds for validating space lidar depolarization calibration. The method takes advantage of the fact that the background light scattered by optically thick ice clouds is almost entirely unpolarized. The theory is examined with background light measurements acquired by the Cloud Physics Lidar.
