[1] The influences of evolving ice habit on the maintenance and glaciation of stratiform mixed‐phase clouds are examined theoretically. Unlike most current modeling methods where a single axis length is predicted, the primary habits, or two axis lengths, are computed explicitly. The method produces a positive non‐linear feedback between mass growth and crystal aspect ratio evolution. Furthermore, ice particle growth has a distinct initial‐size dependence with smaller initial ice particles… CONTINUE READING
