  • In the microphysics-dynamics interaction above the convective cloud base, the analytic solutions with the Maxwellian droplet growth system obtained by Squires (1958) and Fukuta (1993), without including the relationship of the cloud condensation nucleus (CCN) activity spectrum, are shown to be partial or diagnostic solutions and that of Twomey (1959) as a complete or prognostic solution within its approximation. The diagnostic solutions of the diffusion-kinetic (DK) droplet growth system are… CONTINUE READING
