Abstract : The results of complex investigations of clouds and fogs in the Arctic Basin by means of aircraft meteorological instruments are presented. The characteristic of the variability of water content, of the droplet spectra, optical density of clouds and fogs in the vertical direction, from the base to the top of the layer, is given. The presence of small droplets in clouds and fogs which cannot be detected by aerosol collectors, is examined qualitatively. (Author)
