Abstract: A flow chamber has been developed for optically measuring the interaction between an aerosol cloud and falling snow. Analysis of aerosol clouds passing through the optical region of the chamber in the absence of precipitation resulted in an average ratio of 1.09 for transmission readings taken from two lines of sight 1.5 m apart. The ability to pass dynamic aerosol clouds of constant opacity through a chamber where they can be exposed to natural meteorological phenomena allows for the analysis of precipitation scavenging.
