CDC project description

Cloud Droplet Chemistry


The CDC project investigated how droplet chemistry is affected by droplet growth processes, chemical reactions, and entrainment. Two different collection methods for cloud water were used: the Mohnen slotted rods, which collected a bulk cloud water sample, and the counterflow virtual impactor (CVI), which allowed size-selective droplet sampling. The CVI was used to determine droplet composition and concentration as a function of droplet size, and the morphology and composition of droplet residue particles and below-cloud aerosols were compared by electron microscopy.
