Abstract A detailed analysis of several versions of the Caltech Active Strand Cloudwater Collector (CASCC) is conducted. Efficiency calculations, design considerations and procedures for cloud liquid water content estimation from the collection rates of these instruments are discussed. The size-fractionating CASCC is capable of simultaneous collection of samples representing two portions of the cloud drop size spectrum. Large drops are collected in an inlet stage while smaller drops are collected in a second stage. Theoretical calculations, which assume no aerodynamic interaction between adjacent rows of collection rods in the inlet, suggest the inlet should hav...
