Laboratory Measurements and Model Sensitivity Studies of Dust Deposition Ice Nucleation
We investigated the ice nucleating properties of mineral dust particles to understand the sensitivity of simulated cloud properties to two different representations of contact angle in the Classical Nucleation Theory (CNT). These contact angle representations are based on two sets of laboratory deposition ice nucleation measurements: Arizona Test Dust (ATD) particles of 100, 300 and 500 nm sizes were tested at three different temperatures (–25, –30 and –35 °C), and 400 nm ATD and kaolinite dust species were tested at two different temperatures (–30 and –35 °C). These measurements were used to ...
