  • The possible effects on stratocumulus circulations caused by drizzle and radiative cooling or heating are investigated theoretically using a simple Nonlinear Dynamical System (NDS). These effects are incorporated implicitly via the background temperature profile, and are expressed as departures from neutral conditions. These neutral conditions are assumed to be dry adiabatic in the surface, sub-cloud and inversion regions, and moist adiabatic in the cloud region.The NDS domain is divided into… CONTINUE READING
