Vertical profile of cloud microstructure in moderate smoky conditions was done some 100 km to the SW of JPR. Clouds again had droplets concentrations exceeding 3000 cm 3 in smoke. The concentrations reduced to 2000 cm-3 at 15 kft. There was little coalescence and no warm rain processes at all. On the way back we crossed an intense squall line and made a nice cross section of the clouds microstructure at 7 kft, from the smoky leading edge to the transition zone into stratiform. The clouds remained with high droplet concentrations throughout the width of the squall line, even in the heavy rain.
