Paper Abstract

This report presents a summary of major design features of and some early results from a program of measurements of optical and physical properties of fog and haze recently conducted for a period of six weeks in wintertime conditions in West Germany. Measurements included vertical soundings of fog and haze density in the lower few hundred meters of the atmosphere, nearly continuous aerosol particle size distributions in the 0.115 to 77.5 μm radius range, visibility and transmissometer data, liquid water content measurements, and quantitative LIDAR observations. Samples of measurements and results of some preliminary analysis are included.
