AbstractThe bulk adaptive habit model (AHM) explicitly predicts ice particle aspect ratio, improving the representation of microphysical processes and properties, including ice/liquid phase partitioning. With the unique ability to predict ice particle shape and density, the AHM is combined with an offline forward operator to produce fields of simulated polarimetric variables. An evaluation of AHM-forward-simulated dual-polarization radar signatures in an idealized Arctic mixed-phase cloud is presented. Interpretations of those signatures are provided through microphysical model output using Weather Research and Forecasting Large-Eddy Simulations.Vapor-grown ice properties are associated with distinct observable signatures in polarimetric radar variables, with clear sensitivities to the simulated ice particle properties, including ice number, size, and distribution shape. In contrast, liquid droplet number has little influence on both polarimetric and microphysical variables in the case presented herein. Polarimetric quantities are sensitive to the dominating crystal habit type in a volume, with enhancements for aspect ratios much lower or higher than unity. This synthesis of a microphysical model and a polarimetric forward simulator is a first step in the evaluation of detailed AHM microphysics.
