On the other hand, WCBs are important for the radiative budget in the extra-tropics. As they represent the main cloud producing airflow in extratropical cyclones they are responsible for the formation of a great part of condensate (liquid and ice) in the storm track regions. Subsequently, they are also responsible for a great part of the cloud radiative forcing and thus strongly influence the radiative budget in the extra-tropics. This presentation consists of two parts. In the first part we… CONTINUE READING
