Measurements have been made of liquid water content throughout many cumuliform clouds. The amount of water present at any level was always less than the adiabatic value, and the ratio of these two quantities decreased with height above cloud base. This ratio was found to be independent of the horizontal extent of the cloud except in the case of very small clouds. The transition between clear air and dense cloud was frequently abrupt.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1955.tb01183.x
