processor technology with interactive cloud particle
The imaging infrared radiometer operates continuously, providing information on cirrus cloud particle
size and infrared emissions activity.
s Cloud Particle
Imager (CPI), an instrument that takes high-resolution digital images of cloud particles
and flew on NASA's WB-57 platform during the first week in July.
The NASA C-130, based at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, will carry instruments that measure solar (incoming) and infrared (outgoing) radiation, ice surface elevation and cloud properties such as cloud particle
Topics include measurement of aircraft state and thermodynamic and dynamic variables; in situ measurements of gas, aerosol particles, and cloud and precipitation particles; aerosol and cloud particle
sampling; atmospheric radiation measurements; hyperspectral remote sensing; and LIDAR and RADAR observations.
All precipitation - rain, hail, snow or sleet - begins with ice crystals forming around cloud particles
x] falling within an environment of smaller cloud particles
of radius Ry and fall velocity u([R.
Another was provided by Paul Wennberg, associate professor of atmospheric chemistry at Caltech, who developed an instrument that measured the chemical composition of stratospheric cloud particles
Aerosols reflect sunlight and stimulate the growth of cloud particles
, both of which can greatly influence Earth's climate.
SHEBA scientists used radar as well as a shipmounted green laser beam to sweep the Arctic sky and measure cloud particles
Unlike pulp, which contains larger particles that soon sink to the bottom of your glass, cloud particles
remain suspended longer.
When the Earth passes through, the dust cloud particles
hit the atmosphere at 140,000 mph and burn up in streaking flashes of light, creating the spectacle known as the Perseids.
