, therefore,some concern that oversampling of the larger particleshad occurred. In fact, the theory of Langmuir andBlodgett (1946) indicated that 10-p particles should beoversampled with respect to 3-p particles by somethree orders of magnitude. This possibility was rejected on four counts: first, the uncorrected dataaccord generally with those of Woodcock in which thisairspeed problem did not enter ; second, the percentages of 10-p particles in the total impactor collectionson the ground and in the air

. Conversely, if the surface flux is known to benegligible, the integrated value of ~qq is minus the netcondensation rate in the cloud.3. Observations The .observations described in this paper wereconducted over the Langmuir Laboratory for Atmospheric Research. Langmuir Laboratory sits atop theMagdalena Mountains of west-central 'New Mexico.This forested range is aligned north-south, and isabout 20 km long by 10 km wide. It is surroundedby grasslands and low scrub of predominant elevation1800 m on the

Langmuir (1938) in his notes andobservations on Lake George. He observed and roughlymeasured helical circulations near the surface whichcorrespond to the secondary flows developed in themodel derived herein. Rolls provide a possible explanation for the long streaks common to the ocean's surface(Falter, 1965; Roll, 1965, p. 119). Hanna (1969)has suggested planetacw boundary layer rolls as the cause of thelong, parallel alignment of sand dunes in large deserts(see NASA, 1967). This paper attempts to

. 1and shown mounted under the nose of the aircraft infig. 2. The housing was constructed to allow free circulation of air about the thermojunction while deflectingthe water droplets. In this manner the temperatureof the air might be determined without errors due tocontact of the thermocouple with large drops fallingfrom a colder region higher in the cloud.Because of the uselessness of the wet-bulb thermometer under rapidly varying hzmidity conditions,moisture measurements were made by means of

The geostrophic circulation isaltered very little.3. Second modelIt is probably more realistic to assume that theeffect of increased solar output on the annual temperature range will be greater over the continents than overthe oceans. Since the variation of Q with longitude islargely a function of continentality, the

Later,Findeisen (1939) reached the same conclusion.Houghton (1950) compared the rate of mass increaseby sublimation growth of ice crystals with that due toriming and concluded that graupel is the most likelyparticle involved in producing moderate precipitation.Langmuir (1948) proposed the drop-breakup processto explain heavy rain from deep clouds. Meanwhile, pilots flying in the tropics and aware ofBergeron and Findeisen's assertion that the ice
