Evaluation of a new Cloud Droplet Activation Parameterization with In Situ Data from CRYSTAL-FACE and CSTRIPE

  title={Evaluation of a new Cloud Droplet Activation Parameterization with In Situ Data from CRYSTAL-FACE and CSTRIPE},
  author={Nicholas Meskhidze and Athanasios Nenes and William C. Conant and John H. Seinfeld},
The accuracy of the prognostic, physically-based aerosol activation parameterization of Nenes and Seinfeld [2003] (NS) with modifications introduced by Fountoukis and Nenes [2004] (modified NS) is evaluated against extensive microphysical data sets collected on board the CIRPAS Twin Otter aircraft for cumuliform and stratiform clouds of marine and continental origin. The cumuliform cloud data were collected during NASA’s CRYSTAL-FACE (Key West, FL; July, 2002), while the stratiform cloud data… CONTINUE READING
