Simultaneous microscopic study of dry deposition of dust and its washout by rains

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A computer system for surface studies was developed in order to measure particle size distributions on solar collector surfaces. In this study, an attempt was made to apply computerized optical microscopy for comparative analysis of dry deposition and scavenging of dust by raindrops during starting rain. For this purpose, dust load of evaporated raindrops on the glass slides was examined. In this study, the main input dust load of raindrops was found to belong to particles, captured by falling drops in atmosphere.
