Another look at stochastic condensation in clouds: Exact solutions, fokker-planck approximations and adiabatic evolution

Abstract:

In this manuscript - which closely follows Jeffery et al. (2006) - we have taken "another look" at stochastic condensation in the hope of clarifying the earlier derivations and fully exploring the implications of this theory. In contrast to the derivations of Levin and Sedunov (1966a, b) and Manton (1979), we begin with a simple model of stochastic condensation - independent, Gaussian supersaturation fluctuations (S′) renewed after a time τ - that is exactly solvable. This model is trivial to...
