Short summary
In this paper the evolution of deep convective clouds is simulated under different aerosol loading. The simulations are performed using a spectral-bin microphysics model in which droplet concentration at cloud base is calculated using a new analytical method. The effect of this accurate calculation of droplet concentration is analyzed by comparison with a standard method. The role of the smallest CCN in the aerosol spectra is investigated.
