Abstract

ATTEMPTS to identify and count atmospheric ice nuclei, as the first steps towards establishing the chemical and physical nature of such nuclei and their mode of action, have occupied cloud physicists for many years. It is generally accepted that ice nuclei are solid particles; the diameters of these particles have been reported1–6 to be mostly between 0.1µ and 1µ.
