  author={Alexander Khain and M. Ovtchinnikov and Mark Pinsky and A. Pokrovsky and H. Krugliak},
Despite significant advances in cloud physics, many problems exist in the state-of-the-art Ž . microphysical cloud modeling. The progress is hampered by 1 many remaining gaps and Ž . uncertainties in our knowledge of cloud microphysics and 2 limitations of numerical approaches in representing some of known microphysical processes. In this paper, we attempt to give an assessment of several important problems of warm and ice microphysics and model limitations and identify areas where improvements… CONTINUE READING
