Impacts of cloud microphysics on trade wind cumulus: which cloud microphysics processes contribute to the diversity in a large eddy simulation?
This study investigated the impact of several cloud microphysical schemes on the trade wind cumulus in the large eddy simulation model. To highlight the differences due to the cloud microphysicalExpand

Unrealistically pristine air in the Arctic produced by current global scale models
Black carbon aerosol (BCA) in the Arctic has profound impacts on the global climate system through radiation processes. Despite its enormous impacts, current global scale models, powerful tools forExpand

First results from the new RIKEN superconducting electron cyclotron resonance ion source (invited).
The next generation heavy ion accelerator facility, such as the RIKEN radio isotope (RI) beam factory, requires an intense beam of high charged heavy ions. In the past decade, performance of theExpand

The source of discrepancies in aerosol–cloud–precipitation interactions between GCM and A-Train retrievals
Abstract. Aerosol–cloud interactions are one of the most uncertain processes in climate models due to their nonlinear complexity. A key complexity arises from the possibility that clouds can respondExpand

Modeling study on the transport of summer dust and anthropogenic aerosols over the Tibetan Plateau
Abstract. The Tibetan Plateau (TP) is located at the juncture of several important natural and anthropogenic aerosol sources. Satellites have observed substantial dust and anthropogenic aerosols inExpand

Photonuclear reactions triggered by lightning discharge
Lightning and thunderclouds are natural particle accelerators. Avalanches of relativistic runaway electrons, which develop in electric fields within thunderclouds, emit bremsstrahlung γ-rays. TheseExpand

Aerosol effects on cloud water amounts were successfully simulated by a global cloud-system resolving model
Aerosols affect climate by modifying cloud properties through their role as cloud condensation nuclei or ice nuclei, called aerosol–cloud interactions. In most global climate models (GCMs), theExpand

Influence of grid aspect ratio on planetary boundary layer turbulence in large-eddy simulations
Abstract. We examine the influence of the grid aspect ratio of horizontal to vertical grid spacing on turbulence in the planetary boundary layer (PBL) in a large-eddy simulation (LES). In order toExpand
