The formation of ice in a long-lived supercooled layer cloud

Article English OPEN
Westbrook, C. D.; Illingworth, A. J.;

This article focuses on the characteristics of persistent thin single-layer mixed-phase clouds. We seek to answer two important questions: (i) how does ice continually nucleate and precipitate from these clouds, without the available ice nuclei becoming depleted? (ii) h... View more
