Abstract:

Several lines of investigation have been pursued in the second year of the contract. These include the coalescence efficiencies of water drops the production of satellite droplets by colliding water drops and the resulting effect upon rainfall rate the influence of electric forces upon the interaction of cloud droplets the calculation of the effectiveness of various hygroscopic materials as fog modification agents. The studies of the interactions of colliding water drops are now complete and will comprise the main body of the report. The investigation of the hygroscopic material is also complete and the work on the influence of electric forces upon the interactions of cloud droplets is well under way, although the experiment is not yet completely operational.
