Abstract: [1] The responses of cloud physical processes of a developing tropical deep convection to the increase of CCN concentration have been studied using a three-dimensional cloudresolving model. Three sets of model simulations, each consisting of 30 runs initialized using a set of 30 different CCN profiles with maximum concentrations ranging from 50 to 6000/cm 3 , have been carried out. The finding of this study that cloud droplet number concentration increases while cloud droplet size decreases with aerosol conce…
