The influence of sea salt on the cloud droplet activation of sulfate particles is investigated using a size-resolving model of the aerosol activation process. The authors found that the total number concentration of activated cloud droplets increases with increasing sea salt concentration if the...
Motivated by the recent work on the stability properties of balanced dynamics, the author investigates in this paper the stability of parallel basic flow in the baroclinic semigeostrophic (SG) model in geometric coordinates. The linearized baroclinic SG equation with a nonconstant Coriolis...
The asymptotic profiles of a viscous flow and an inviscid turbulent flow are matched by the appropriate choice of the only free parameter, the von Kármán constant κ. The matching result is κ = exp(−1) = 0.3678 · · · . This value is supported by recent experimental evidence from...
The buoyancy of convective clouds in TOGA COARE was calculated from the NCAR Electra in situ measurements of temperature, humidity, liquid water content, and two-dimensional images of raindrops. Most of the measurements were made at 700 mb (10°C) although some were made at 850 (18°C) and 600 mb...
A fundamental but approximate formula has been established by Twomey in order to compute the nucleated cloud droplet number concentration as a function of the vertical velocity and the CCN (cloud condensation nuclei) characteristics expressed by the C and k parameters. The derivation of such a...
The interpretation of satellite-observed radiances to derive cloud optical depth and effective particle size requires radiative transfer calculations relating these parameters to the reflectance, transmittance, and emittance of the cloud. Such computations can be extremely time consuming when...
