A model for warm clouds with implicit droplet activation, avoiding saturation adjustment

Nikolas Porz, Martin Hanke-Bourgeois, Manuel Baumgartner & Peter Spichtinger
The representation of cloud processes in weather and climate models is crucial for their feedback on atmospheric flows. Since there is no general macroscopic theory of clouds, the parameterization of clouds in corresponding simulation software depends crucially on the underlying modeling assumptions. In this study we present a new model of intermediate complexity (a one-and-a-half moment scheme) for warm clouds, which is derived from physical principles. Our model consists of a system of differential-algebraic equations...
