Short summary
Arctic mixed-phase clouds are poorly represented in numerical models, due in part to an overpredicted ice phase. Here, we examine the sensitivity of cloud structure, evolution, and lifetime to modelled primary ice number concentrations over three different surfaces – sea ice, marginal ice, and ocean – to investigate the dependency on both the ice phase and dynamics induced from surface fluxes.
