Because preactivation can be lost if the particles are warmed or dehydrated prior to testing in an IN counter, this behavior creates a significant dilemma for IN measurements in almost any sampling scenario. 3 Variations of Ice Nuclei and Ice Particle Concentrations Ice nucleus concentrations can sometimes vary by several orders of magnitude over several hours (see also Chapters 5 and 6). Historically ice nuclei concentrations have been assumed as predictors of ice particle concentrations. Laboratory studies in the 1940’s and 1950’s using systems for low temperature processing of ice nuclei collected on filters indicated that the variability in ice nuclei concentration was strongly a function of temperature.

The number of ions produced by each molecule of the material when it dissolves). Thus, im/Ms is the effective number of kilomoles of the material in the dissolved droplet. One can think of the terms im as representing the particular chemical properties of the salt. Note how the droplets that have been activated (im/M5=10À15, 10À16, 10À17) approach a monodispersed size distribution after just 100 s. e. $60 m above cloud base). The variation with time of the supersaturation of the air parcel is also shown (dashed line).

2001), for example, compiled data from the glaciated regions of stratus clouds for a number of field campaigns and found that ice crystals smaller than 1000 mm diameter do not show a good correlation with temperature and that the concentrations of these smaller ice particles varied up to three orders of magnitude for a given temperature (Fig. 11). On the other hand, measurements of ice particle concentrations in wave clouds where only ‘‘initial’’ ice particles are likely (Cooper and Vali 1981), showed ice particle concentrations increasing with decreasing temperature.
