Query on the 'namelist.input' file for running WRF-Chem to study aerosol-cloud-climate interaction
I have a small inquiry about the setup of some variables in 'namelist.input' file for running WRF-Chem to study aerosol-cloud-climate interaction. After going through various research papers on ...
Under which conditions would you see the MOST lake effect precipitation?
It's well known that the Great Lakes produce large amounts of precipitation in the Fall. When cold polar air moves over the lakes it causes large amounts of relatively warm moist air to rise, ...
Equilibrium condition for Kelvin's Vapor Pressure-curvature equation
This is regarding the Correction due to 'Curvature of the drop' made by Lord Kelvin to the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation. So, the idea is that, during large scale nucleation of water vapour into cloud ...
Ice Water Content from GFS file
I am working my way through this paper: http://downloads.hindawi.com/journals/amete/2017/8707234.pdf Equations 10 and 11 require the ice water content. I can't find it in the GFS grib2 file ...
At what point are water droplets too small to make a rainbow?
This question asks How to tell if fog is made out of water droplets or ice crystals? I know that ice fog makes a rainbow where fog does not. Ice crystals aside: How does the water droplet size ...
Why is convective precipitation associated with heavy rains?
Why is convective precipitation associated with heavy rains? As per wikipedia's page on Atmospheric Convection: "Moist convection leads to thunderstorm development, which is often responsible for ...
