spectrometers capable of providing detailed size spectra typically have a temporal resolution no better than 1 Hz, and thus cannot resolve all the turbulent fluctuations in particle concentration; they also tend to be bulky and require a long sample line between the instrument and the sampling location—this incurs loss of particles to the wall of the sample line, introduces a lag time between aerosol and sonic turbulence wind measurements, and may further reduce the frequency response due to mixing within

In clouds of low to medium droplet size(<30 # diameter) the liquid water content from a conventional hot wire device was found to be in excellentagreement with that determined with an optical array particle size spectrometer. In populations containingmore mature cloud droplets the integrated liquid water content from the spectrometer data is consistentlyhigher. This is attributed to

anomaly (≈ δ 18 O-0.528 · δ 17 O). Still, such an approach is complex and carries a high risk of failure and, more principally, offers a poor temporal and spatial resolution. Recent advantages in the laser field have improved in situ measurements of atmospheric trace gases, as an alternative to more conventional methods. Semiconductor lasers enable the development of compact, stable, and reliable spectrometers. Diode-laser spectrometry offers several advantages over mass spectroscopy for precise in

about SPCs in the field of nuclear physics or aerosols, for example. In this paper, the discussion is focused more specifically on airborne measurements of cloud particles and is illustrated with measurements made with the Forward Scattering Spectrometer Probe (FSSP-100) and its improved version, the Fast-FSSP. Detailed information about the FSSP can be found in Dye and Baumgardner (1984) , Baumgardner et al. (1985) , Brenguier (1989) , and Baumgardner and Spowart (1990) . 2. Single particle
