The effect of sub-cloud aerosol on cloud droplet concentration was explored over the north Atlantic and east Pacific under a variety of low and high wind speed conditions. A relationship of the form of D = 197{1 - exp(-6.13 × 103*A)} was found to fit best the relationship between cloud droplet concentration (D; cm-3) and sub-cloud aerosol concentration (A; cm-3) under low to moderate wind conditions. A few noticeable deviations from this relationship were observed which occurred under moderate… CONTINUE READING
