    Abstract

    Cloud water phase partitioning of global climate models is investigated using four different models. Two simulations are done: One with the models' default heterogeneous ice nucleation and another one using a fixed ice nucleation for all models. Results show that heterogeneous ice nucleation can influence the water phase partitioning, however, its influence is not the dominant factor leading to the phase partitioning differences among models.
