Influence of updrafts and embedded convection on the microphysics of riming

Björn Baschek
The connection between on one hand updrafts favoring condensation and prolonged residence times of hydrometeors in clouds and on the other hand riming – the accretion of supercooled cloud droplets onto pre-existing ice particles – is generally acknowledged. However, experimental observations of the riming degree of ice crystals together with a quantification of updrafts or embedded convective cells are scarce. Several questions could so far not be answered satisfactorily, for example: What are suitable means...
