Snow as an obscurant presents some interesting challenges to those attempting to characterize it. The wide range of particle sizes which can he present at any instant, and the intricate and varied particle geometry, which makes particle orientation an important consideration in snow characterization and extinction measurements, both call for the use of special measurement techniques. The application of particle size spectrometer probes to the measurement of distributions and area concentrations for snow crystals and flakes in the 12.5- to 6200 -μM size range is described.
