Description: Special Report
Abstract: Some U00 tests were conducted in the CRREL Cold Cloud Chamber to determine the combination of air pressure and nozzle design that yielded the maximum production of ice crystals in a supercooled fog. It was found that some 0.22 m^3 min^-1 of air which has been compressed to 517 kPa is needed to be effective for clearing a supercooled fog.
