Abstract:

Atmospheric waterdrop size distribution was measured by a laser fog nephelometer at Capistrano Test Site, California, from 16 April through 11 May 1974. Liquid water content, extinction coefficient, and visibility were calculated from the data obtained. The nephelometer data were collected from sunset to sunrise nightly for 25 consecutive nights. Fog conditions were recorded on 4 of these nights. A time format of 5-minute samples separated by 5-minute pauses was used. The data are presented in tabular form referenced to channel number i.e., nominal radius. For comparison, the 64 channels of data were treated in four groups of 16 channels each as well as one group of 64 channels. This volume contains general narrative and background. Volume II contains tabularized data for CTS-1 through CTS-5, Volume III for CTS-6 through 10, Volume IV for CTS-11 through 15, Volume V for CTS-16 through 20, and Volume VI for CTS-21 through 25.
