Short summary
Ice nucleating particles (INPs) influence cloud properties and can affect the overall precipitation efficiency. An existing technique for measuring INP concentrations is modified and automated, and heat transfer properties of the INP measurement technique are characterized for the first time using a finite-element-analysis-based heat transfer simulation to improve accuracy of INP freezing temperature measurement.
