Instrument

CAPS
Cloud Aerosol and Precipitation Spectrometer

The Cloud Aerosol and Precipitation Spectrometer (CAPS) was developed by Droplet Measurement Technologies. It combines the Cloud Imaging Probe (CIP), the Cloud and Aerosol Spectrometer (CAS), and the Hotwire Liquid Water Content Sensor into one instrument. It is used to measure size distribution of aerosol, cloud, and liquid droplets. CAPS measures particles between the sizes of 50-1600μm.
