Abstract: used as input for the NS parameterization, and the evaluation is carried out by comparing predicted cloud droplet number concentrations (CDNC) with observations. This is the first known study in which a prognostic cloud droplet activation parameterization has been evaluated against a wide range of observations. On average, predicted droplet concentration in adiabatic regions is within ~20% of observations at the base of cumuliform clouds and ~30% of observations at different altitudes throughout the * Corresp…
