Rain Scavenging of Zinc Sulfide Particles

  title={Rain Scavenging of Zinc Sulfide Particles},
  author={Rudolf J. Engelmann},
Abstract Several scavenging experiments were conducted using artificial rain in the outdoors with zinc sulfide tracer particles. The measured collection efficiencies for raindrops are compared to the theoretical predictions of Langmuir, and to the measurements with freely falling drops made by Kinzer and Cobb, Walton and Woolcock, and McCully et al. The four main characteristics of the efficiencies found are 1) higher efficiencies for drops of about 0.4 mm diameter, 2) efficiencies greater than… CONTINUE READING
