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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
