Aerosol First Indirect Effects on Non-Precipitating Low-Level Liquid Cloud Properties as Simulated by CAM5 at ARM Sites
We quantitatively examine the aerosol first indirect effects (FIE) for non-precipitating low-level single-layer liquid phase clouds simulated by the Community Atmospheric Model version 5 (CAM5) running in the weather forecast mode at three DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) sites. The FIE is quantified in terms of a relative change in cloud droplet effective radius for a relative change in accumulation mode aerosol number concentration under conditions of fixed liquid water content (LWC). CAM5 simulates aerosol-cloud interactions reasonably well for this specific cloud type, and the ...

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 Author(s):Murakami, Yasutaka
Date Submitted:2020Stratocumulus 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 ...
Global View of Midlevel Liquid-Layer Topped Stratiform Cloud Distribution and Phase Partition from CALIPSO and CloudSat Measurements, A Author(s):Zhang, Damao; Wang, Zhien; Liu, Dong
Date:2010-02-27The first 2 year measurements from Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) lidar and CloudSat radar were analyzed to study the distribution and phase partition of midlevel liquid-layer ...

Date:2011-02-07We use global models to explore the microphysical effects of carbonaceous aerosols on liquid clouds. Although absorption of solar radiation by soot warms the atmosphere, soot may cause climate cooling due to its contribution ...
