Abstract:

Two models of impactors have been designed for remote sampling of hydrometeors. One, a flashbulb-activated model, is quite suitable for multiple simultaneous sampling, but is prone to occasional mechanical failure. The other, a solenoid-operated model, is almost failure proof but requires considerably more electrical current for multiple simultaneous sampling than does the flash type unit. Results of some laboratory tests on the impactors are shown and field use of the impactors is discussed. The appendix contains electrical specifications for each type of unitt
