Record #109950:

Rotating multicylinder method for the measurement of cloud liquid-water content and droplet size / John B. Howe.

Title: Rotating multicylinder method for the measurement of cloud liquid-water content and droplet size / John B. Howe.
Author(s): Howe, John B.
Date: 1991.
In: CRREL Report. (1991.), Vol. 91-2 (1991)
Abstract: Method has been in use at Mount Washington Observatory since 1940s, but no published description of it has appeared, although it provides simplest and most reliable technique for measurements in icing conditions. Fabrication, exposure, data-reduction techniques, and underlying theory are described in detail. Accuracy of method is discussed and comparison tests with other instruments are briefly reviewed.
Notes:

CRREL Report. Vol. 91-2 :iv, 1-18 (1991).

Keywords: 551.508.76 -- Cloud characteristics, meteorological instruments.
551.5 -- Meteorology.
E3 -- Glaciology: instruments and methods.
