One of the most efficient methods for determining the number of active cloud nuclei is the determination of the concentration of cloud drops in the lower layer of recently-formed clouds. With this in mind, microstructural measurements were made in the lower layer of recently-formed summer cumulus clouds over Hungary. The concentration of large and giant aerosol particles was determined simultaneously by airplane, using plates and membrane filters. Independently of these measurements, the physical and chemical properties of an atmospheric aerosol were also studied.
