Abstract

Several studies have found evidence of warm-season rainfall increases over and downwind of cities. This induced precipitation (PCP) has been attributed mostly to induced updraft of warm air masses. Aerosols are abundant in urban environments and it has been hypothesized that they play a key role in the water balance of cities. High concentrations of cloud… (More)
