Cloud Precipitation and Aerosol Group


Observational study on precipitation cloud system and artificial-seeding physical effect is carried out based on the advanced detector devices for cloud and precipitation physics, including aircraft as the main detection platform, satellites, radars, ground-based pluviometer and rainfall intensity recorder network, as well as raindrop spectrograph. Physical and chemical mechanisms of fog are studied by comprehensive field observations. The spatial and temporal distributions of hydrometeors in a supercell are simulated and analyzed by use of a three-dimensional compressible non-hydrostatic convective cloud model. Aerosol indirect radiation effects are studied for parameterization according to the integrated ground-based experiments, aircraft field tests and remote sensing observations in China.
