Flight icing-rate data obtained in a dense and abnormally deep supercooled stratiform cloud system in the vicinity of Lake Erie indicated the existence of liquid-water contents generally exceeding values in amount and extent previously reported over the mid-western sections of the United States. Additional information obtained during descent through a part of the cloud system indicated liquid-water contents that significantly exceeded theoretical values, especially near the middle of the cloud layer.
