Time-dependent, non-monotonic response of warm convective cloud fields to changes in aerosol loading

Abstract:

Large eddy simulations (LESs) with bin microphysics are used here to study cloud fields’ sensitivity to changes in aerosol loading and the time evolution of this response. Similarly to the known response of a single cloud, we show that the mean field properties change in a nonmonotonic trend, with an optimum aerosol concentration for which the field reaches its maximal water mass or rain yield. This trend is a result of competition between processes that encourage cloud development versus tho...
