Abstract:

A three-dimensional numerical model of moist convection and formation of convective cloudiness in the Arctic atmosphere is considered. A model of mixed clouds with explicit description of liquid and ice phases is used with nonstationary equations for cloud-drop and ice-particle size distributions. The model capability in the reproduction of polar mesoscale cyclones in the Arctic atmosphere is analyzed.

Keywords:

numerical simulation, atmosphere, convective cloudiness, polar mesoscale cyclones, condensation, coagulation, nucleation
