Stratocumulus over SouthEast Pacific: Idealized 2D simulations with the Lagrangian Cloud Model

Abstract:

In this paper a LES model with Lagrangian representation of microphysics is used to simulate stratucumulus clouds in idealized 2D set-up based on the VOCALS observations. The general features of the cloud simulated by the model, such as cloud water mixing ratio and cloud droplet number profile agree well with the observations. The model can capture observed relation between aerosol distribution and concentration measured below the cloud and cloud droplet number. Averaged over the whole cloud ...
