Paper Abstract

A transmissometer developed at the Visibility Laboratory, University of California at San Diego is described. This instrument is capable of being operated by nontechnical persons with little instruction. No compromise has been made in the precision of measurement to obtain the design objectives which include ease of operation, low maintenance and reliability. The optical system, Which has a cylindrically limited beam rather than a collimated source of light, is discussed.
