Hydrometeor concentrations seen by fuselage-mounted particle measurement instruments are distorted owing to flow around the airplane. A general, three-dimensional method is used to compute flow-caused concentration distortion for specific sampling sites on two C130 cloud physics research airplanes. Results are presented for a variety of hydrometeor types rain, snow and ice over broad ranges of particle size.
