In situ observations of a reduction in effective crystal diameter in cirrus clouds near flight corridors

Abstract : Measurements of the crystal size distribution performed over Southern Germany show that the effective diameter decrease 10-30% in cirrus clouds perturbed by aircraft. The reduction is more pronounced at higher cloud water content and is not observed at temperatures warmer than-30øC.
