A method to determine the amounts of cloud-top radiative and evaporative cooling in a stratocumulus-topped boundary layer

Abstract

The turbulent processes of a stratocumulus-topped marine boundary layer are not yet fully understood. Among the issues is the relative importance of the effects of cloud-top radiative and evaporative cooling in driving the stratocumulus-topped marine boundary layer turbulence, and in producing cloud break-up. A better way to analyse the relevant… (More)
