Abstract:

This report describes the work carried out during the first three years of research devoted to aerosol studies. Some preliminary measurements have been made primarily to ensure the accurate and reliable operation of the various devices installed rather than with any closely defined specific scientific goals in mind at this time. However, two specific aerosol projects have been conducted during this period. The former project is a laboratory investigation of the effects of mixing on the evolution of wet aerosol spectra, and the latter project deals with electrical studies of the turbulent mixing of aerosol trapped at a temperature inversion. The final section of this report briefly describes and discusses recent work carried out and likely future developments.
