Paper Abstract

The microphysics of clouds have been studied for many years using airborne particle measuring instruments. The calibration of these instruments has presented a major measurement uncertainty because of the complexity of the probes and the lack of an absolute calibration technique. The use of holographic imaging is being explored as a means of establishing the absolute size and concentration of cloud particles. Preliminary studies which use holography for determining size calibrations for these instruments are discussed.
