Theoretical study of mixing in liquid clouds – Part 1: Classical concepts

Alexei Korolev et al.

Data sets

Flight Level Data from the University of Wyoming King Air during the Convective Precipitation Experiment-Microphysics and Entrainment Dependencies (COPE-MED), Version 1.0 University of Wyoming, Research Flight Center

Short summary
Relationships between basic microphysical parameters are studied within the framework of homogeneous and extreme inhomogeneous mixing. Analytical expressions and numerical simulations of relationships between droplet concentration, extinction coefficient, liquid water content, and mean volume droplet size are presented. The obtained relationships between moments are used to identify type of mixing for in situ observations obtained in convective clouds.
