Abstract

During the replication of ice crystals by conventional methods the crystals both grow and flocculate; this can lead to erroneous determination of their size distribution and to unreliable analysis of the in-cloud interactions which occurred prior to replication. A study has been made of these difficulties and an improved replication procedure has been used to overcome them.
