Abstract: Cloud and aerosol particles are exposed to laser light to measure
particle size from 0.3 micrometer to 6.4 millimeter, and both size and
shape between 40 micrometer and 6.4 millimeter particle diameter as
function of particle size. The size distributions thus; determined
will be integrated to yield particle surface area, and ice and liquid
water contents in clouds and precipitation.
