Priestley, C. H. B. (2011)

According to KRUEGER and FRITZ (1961), one of the outstanding features calling for explanation in the cellular cloud patterns revealed by satellites is tha t the diameter-to-depth ratio is around thirty, instead of about three as predicted by classical theory and verified by laboratory experiments.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1962.tb00125.x
