    • Observed and Simulated Variability of Droplet Spectral Dispersion in Convective Clouds Over the Amazon 

      Hernández Pardo, LianetORCIDiD; Machado, Luiz A. T.ORCIDiD; Morrison, HughORCIDiD; Cecchini, Micael A.ORCIDiD; Andreae, Meinrat O.ORCIDiD; Pöhlker, Christopher; Pöschl, Ulrich; Rosenfeld, DanielORCIDiD; Vendrasco, Eder P.; Voigt, ChristianeORCIDiD; Wendisch, ManfredORCIDiD; Pöhlker, Mira L.ORCIDiD (Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, 2021-10-15)
      In this study, the variability of the spectral dispersion of droplet size distributions (DSDs) in convective clouds is investigated. Analyses are based on aircraft measurements of growing cumuli near the Amazon basin, and ...
    • One Step at a Time: How Model Time Step Significantly Affects Convection-Permitting Simulations 

      Barrett, Andrew I.ORCIDiD; Wellmann, ConstanzeORCIDiD; Seifert, AxelORCIDiD; Hoose, CorinnaORCIDiD; Vogel, BernhardORCIDiD; Kunz, MichaelORCIDiD (Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems, 2019)
      We show that there is a strong sensitivity of cloud microphysics to model time step in idealized convection-permitting simulations using the COnsortium for Small-scale MOdeling model. Specifically, we found a 53% reduction ...
    • Process-Based Simulation of Aerosol-Cloud Interactions in a One-Dimensional Cirrus Model 

      Kärcher, B.ORCIDiD (Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, 2020)
      A new microphysical cirrus model to simulate ice crystal nucleation, depositional growth, and gravitational settling is described. The model tracks individual simulation ice particles in a vertical column of air and allows ...
