Research Highlight


Cloud Aerosol Interactions and its influence on Cloud Microphysical parameters during Dry and Wet spells of Indian Summer Monsoon using CAIPEEX data

The CDPRe and LWC show strong linear correlation during both dry spells and wet spells of ISMR. The mid level clouds CM   ~ 2000 meters are more favorable for coalescence of cloud droplets leading to growth of CDPRe > 14 µm required for warm rain formation.
