Abstract : The prediction of atmospheric extinction from a measurable fog or cloud microphysical parameter such as liquid water content is of considerable practical interest. It is important that absolute methods for the measurement of liquid water content are carefully evaluated. This interim report describes experimental techniques used to measure absolutely liquid water content of laboratory cloud.
