Description
The Cloud Particle Imager (CPI):

CPIs sold to NASA, NCAR, University of Washington, University of
North Dakota,

Canadian Meteorological Society, University of Manchester

CPIs operated in several field campaigns including: NASA TRMM,
NASA EOS, NASA CAMEX, NSF SHEBA, NSF Antarctica Program,

NCAR/FAA MWISP, DOE ARM, Canadian Atlantic Storms Project, Canadian,
Freezing, Drizzle Experiment, Alliance Icing Research Study,NSF Cloud
Study, Australian Emerald Project

High-resolution (2.3 micron pixel size) digital images of
particles recorded as particles pass through the sample volume
at speeds up to 200 m/s.

Real time image processing crops particle images, eliminating
blank space and compressing data by >1000:1 ? Data analysis
software automatically classifies ice crystal habits and
separates water drops from ice particles.
