Abstract : Navy Weather Research Facility personnel operated cloud-particle samplers aboard ESSA-RFF aircraft during 1969 Project STORMFURY operations. The primary objective was to measure the liquid- and ice-water contents in seeded protions of STORMFURY hurricanes and cloudline cumulus clouds. This report presents the WEARSCHFAC cloud-particle analysis system and preliminary water contents from particle samples obtained during the 15 September 1969 flight south of NAVSTA Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico.
