Additional information

This optical spectrometer measures the size and shape of particles from 25 μm
to 1550 μm, liquid water content from 0.01 to 3 g/m3 and airspeed to 200 m/sec.
Included in this instrument package are temperature, pressure and relative
humidity sensors. The CIP offers comprehensive data on larger particles.
The Cloud Imaging Probe (CIP) is a single-particle optical array probe
complemented
with sensors for air temperature, relative humidity, liquid water content, and air
speed.
