Summary

The paper presents a contribution to the deduction of the distribution function of cloud condensation nuclei in a maritime atmosphere depended on supersaturation. The calculation is based on the Nukyiama-Tanassava distribution function and on the data deduced from the measurement of giant chloride nuclei concentration with a cascade impactor on the seashore. The supersaturation distribution function found was a decreasing function unlike the same relationship calculated using Junge's distribution law.

Ableitung des Größenspektrums von Riesen-Chloridkernen an der Küste

Zusammenfassung

Die Arbeit stellt einen Beitrag zur Ableitung der Verteilungs-Funktion von Kondensationskernen in der maritimen Atmosphäre in Abhängigkeit von der Übersättigung dar. Die Auswertung beruht auf der Anwendung der Nukyiama-Tanassava-Verteilungs-Funktion und auf den Daten, welche bei Messungen der Konzentration der Riesenkerne von Chloriden mit Hilfe eines Kaskaden-Impaktors an der Meeresküste gewonnen wurden. Die abgeleitete Verteilungs-Funktion ist eine fallende Funktion, die von der Beziehung abweicht, welche auf Grund der von Junge angegebenen Verteilung berechnet wurde.
