A newly established cloud modeling program in the Cloud Physics Branch of the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory will employ a three-dimensional cloud model to predict cloud dynamic and bulk-microphysical quantities and a 1 12-dimensional Eulerian cloud model to determine more detailed microphysical properties of clouds. These modeling studies will be applied to problems involving electromagnetic propagation in cloud and airframe icing. Four approaches for determining detailed microphysical properties of clouds from a 3-D bulk microphysical model are outlined in order of increasing complexity.
