We analyze specific features of the cloud chamber technique used for measurements of atmospheric ice nuclei concentration. The chamber “SALYa” at the Central Aerological Observatory and the measurement procedure are described. The results of the study of systematic and random errors of the method are presented. The correspondence of the conditions in the cloud chamber to natural conditions of ice nuclei action is discussed.
