Abstract:

The development and improvement of cloud microphysical parameterizations for use in cloud and numerical weather prediction models. The objectives are a Conduct detailed studies of marine stratocumulus cloud microphysical processes using a high-resolution large eddy simulation LES model with explicit microphysics. b Achieve better understanding of interactions between microphysical, radiative and boundary layer thermodynamical processes in order to improve their formulation in numerical weather prediction models.
