Cloud microphysics and dynamical characteristics of tropical ice clouds inferred from cloud radar and lidar

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The inter-relations of in-cloud vertical air motion and ice cloud microphysics are investigated for quantitative estimate of cloud formation and duration. Data were obtained by ship-borne 95-GHz radar and lidar in the Tropical Western Pacific.
