This report describes particle spectra in thin cirrus clouds that were sampled on 18 March 1978 southwest of Albuquerque. The sampling aircraft, an MC-130E, flew near 31,000 ft 9.4 km and acquired cloud particle data with its three PMS spectrometer probes. Ice crystals larger than 50 micrometer were recorded for only about 17 min, but smaller ones were measured by an axial scattering probe for several more minutes. Listings of particle concentration vs size, averaged over consecutive 30 sec intervals for 75 min, are included. Author
