Cold Environment Simulator Facility

This facility is widely used for experiments to elucidate cloud formation processes and meteorological phenomena occurring in low-temperature environments and to develop/test measuring devices.

It consists of two cold rooms in which the air temperature can be lowered to -40 and -90属C, respectively, and a cloud simulation chamber in which atmospheric environments for cloud formation can be reproduced with a temperature range of +30 to -100属C, a pressure range of 1,013 to 30 hPa, and an updraft velocity range of up to 30 m/sec.
