Results of a theoretical study of vertical mass transport under conditions of developed two-layer convection are presented. A spatial eddy-resolving model of an ensemble of thermals, cumulus and cumulonimbus clouds is used to describe motions in the atmosphere. The equations account for the active role of aerosols in processes of cloud and precipitation formation.
