Abstract:
This thesis examines: the role of the ice phase in the earth's atmosphere; an abundant ootentiai source of ice nuclei; a technique for studying and assessing ice nuclei in the laboratory; the validity of many common cloud microphysics measurement techniques. Data analysis techniques are developed to study the influence of ice in mixed phase cloud conditions using measurements made at a ground based mountain top site in the Swiss Alps.
