Abstract : It is shown that (1) radar methods of investigating clouds already now permit rich information to be obtained about the distribution of large particles in clouds, which is in itself of great importance, since it allows deeper penetration into the physics of cloud formation processes and percipitation; and that (2) use of the ratiowave absorption phenomenon in clouds open real perspectives of determining water content and cloud boundaries with the aid of a special radar apparatus.
