“Growth of Cloud Droplets by Turbulent Collision–Coalescence”

April 16th, 2008 · No Comments

To help better explain the gap between theoretical and observed precipitation droplet growth times, Xue et al. attempted to quantify the effects of turbulent motions on collision and coalescence. In “Growth of Cloud Droplets by Turbulent Collision-Coalescence” from the February 2008 Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, several different model parameterizations for collision kernels were compared [...]
