Short summary
Mixed-phase clouds are ubiquitous. Process-level understanding is needed to address the complexity of mixed-phase clouds and to improve their representation in models. This study illustrates steps to identify the impact of a microphysical process (riming) on cloud Doppler radar observations. It suggests that in situ observations of key ice properties are needed to complement radar observations before process-oriented studies can effectively evaluate ice microphysical parameterizations in models.
