Abstract
  • Condensed water content (CWC) measured using a counterflow virtual impactor (CVI) with a Lyman-α hygrometer downstream is compared with that measured by other airborne instruments (a hot-wire probe, a PMS FSSP, and a PMS 2D-C). Results indicate that the CVI system provides a reliable measurement of CWC in both liquid- and ice-phase clouds and that the CVI measures CWC contained in both large and small hydrometeors; this means that the condensed water present in both phases and virtually all hydrometeor sizes can be measured with a single device. Small ice contents of a few milligrams per cubic meter present in cirrus clouds can also be measured by the technique.
