  • "The amount of seawater spray and the size distribution of seawater particles were measured by a spray particle counter (SPC) and a marine rain gauge type spray gauge (MRS). The SPC (SPC-S7; Niigata Denki), which was originally developed for the measurement of drifting snow, was improved to be a seawater spray particle counter. MRS consists of a marine rain gauge (CYG-50202, R M Young)and a cylindrical spray trap. The marine rain gauge was developed to measure rainfall on ships. It collects seawater spray or precipitation in a catchment funnel which has a cross sectional areaSPC were installed on center of the compass deck. The two MRSs were installed one on the port side and one on the starboard side of the bridge deck.The data of SPC, MRSs were obtained continuously through the cruise from Oct. 25 to Dec. 5."
