Abstract

Water droplets of varying sizes, released through an atomizer, were collected on glass slides coated with uniform layers of magnesium oxide or carbon soot and silicone oil. Assuming that the droplets retain their original shapes in the oil film, calibrations were obtained for their spreading on oxide and soot layers of known thickness. The calibrations have been further applied to evaluate droplet size distributions of ground-based clouds.
