cloud gun

A device for airborne or ground-based use that exposes a soot-coated glass slide for an instant to a cloudy airstream.

Cloud droplets impact on and leave craters in the soot coating for subsequent measurement of droplet size spectra using a computer-driven image analysis system and calibrations that relate drop size to crater size.
