On the relation between satellite observed liquid water path, cloud droplet number concentration and cloud base rain rate and its implication for the auto-conversion rate in stratocumulus clouds
Stratocumulus clouds are low-level convective clouds that develop within the atmospheric boundary layer. Their persistence and broad coverage of the earth's surface produces important impacts on the global radiation energy budget and hydrological cycle. Precipitation processes of these stratocumulus clouds play a large role in their longevity and spatial distribution through their interaction with the vertical profiles of humidity and temperature within the atmospheric boundary layer. This has led to a number of field campaigns to understand the precipitation processes of stratocumulus clouds. ...
