Abstract:

Comparisons between some physical characteristics of water fogs produced in several ways from pyrotechnically generated hygroscopic nuclei are presented. These results were obtained from a series of 31 plume experiments off Nantucket during 8-12 June 1979. The comparisons include the maximum scattering of the fogs at optical wavelengths, the duration of the fogs and the detection of larger droplets in the fogs. The results show that significant physical properties of the resultant water fogs can be modified by both the production process andor the chemical formulation of the pyrotechnic material. Author
