The basic studies considered the coalecence of drops after contact under conditions simulating or exaggerating those conceivably prevalent in the atmosphere and in clouds. The major emphasis was in a search for additives to the drops and the air environment that would shorten the delay of coalescence. Many additives were investigated as reported earlier but no significant effects were observed except for the occasional shortening effects of ammonia in the environment. These results are difficult to evaluate in terms of a workable theory of coalescence.
