cloud-drop sampler

A general term for instruments that collect cloud droplets to determine their size or impurities; includes devices with direct-impaction surfaces that either capture or leave an impression of the impinging droplets, such as the cloud gun, as well as bulk samplers that capture and collect cloud droplets for chemical analysis, such as the rime rod.
