Improving bulk cloud microphysics modeling: the role of super-droplet simulations

Cloud microphysics refers to the complex processes that govern the formation, evolution, and interactions of particles within clouds. These processes significantly influence the Earth’s climate system by regulating precipitation patterns and cloud cover. Understanding the intricacies of cloud microphysics is therefore essential for accurate climate modeling. Yet, the precise modeling of these complex microphysical processes remains one of the most challenging aspects of climate research. Traditional cloud microphysics modeling within climate models, known as bulk methods, aims to simplify the physics governing the vast range of processes occurring within clouds. While these methods have enabled more efficient climate simulations, their…
