Short summary
We use the adjoint model of a cirrus parameterization to quantify sources of crystal variability for various ice-nucleating spectra and output from CAM5. The sensitivities can be directly linked to nucleation regime and efficiency of various INP. The lab-based spectrum calculates much higher INP efficiencies than field-based ones, owing to aerosol surface properties. The sensitivity to temperature tends to be low, due to the compensating effects of temperature on INP spectrum parameters.
