Short summary
The effect of atmospheric aerosols on cloud properties is not very well understood in the Indian region, especially over Western Ghats, which is influenced by natural and anthropogenic aerosols. Collocated measurements of aerosol and cloud properties were used to estimate aerosol indirect effects using two methods: one with cloud drop number concentration and the other with cloud droplet size. Discrepancy between both methods is discussed, and the necessity of dispersion offset is emphasized.
