Data source: instrument CAS-DPOL

Properties

Name Cloud and Aerosol Spectrometer
Acronym CAS-DPOL
Description The CAS-DPOL (Cloud and Aerosol Spectrometer, with detector for polarization) instrument provides measurements of the concentration and size of aerosol particles, cloud droplets and ice crystals in the size range between 0.5 and 50.0 μm. Intensity distributions from the forward and backward scattered light by individual particles that pass through a focused laser beam are measured to derive the size distribution of the particles and the phase (liquid or ice). Additionally the intensity of the S and P polarized light is measured.
