Abstract : The report describes two instruments that have been designed and fabricated for use in measuring various meteorological parameters in the atmosphere surrounding, and inside, clouds and fog. These instruments are an airborne raindrop spectrometer that will measure the size and distribution of raindrops at various flight altitudes and an automatic liquid-water-content meter that will measure continuously the liquid-water content of clouds and fog while unattended.
