Microphysics of clouds
Research Group Leader: prof. dr hab. Hanna Pawłowska
We investigate the microphysics and dynamics of convective clouds in a wide range of spatial
and temporal scales: from the detailed microphysics of individual
aerosol and cloud droplets (activation, growth by condensation, and
collision-coalescence), to the motion of the whole cloud. To answer our research questions, we develop and apply a Lagrangian Cloud Model, where the cloud-scale flow computed by Large-Eddy Simulations is
coupled with a Lagrangian description of the cloud-particle microphysics.
