Settling velocities, masses and external dimensions were determined experimentally for small freely falling ice crystals grown for about 100 s at 12 different temperatures within the range −3.4 to −20°C. The corresponding terminal velocities were calculated using the above measurements, together with the empirical Be-Re relationships, deduced from previous model experiments. Reasonably good agreement was found between theory and experiment.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1977.tb00737.x
