A. Khain, Thara V. Prabha, Nir Benmoshe, G. Pandithurai and M. Ovchinnikov The mechanism of first raindrops formation in deep convective clouds Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres 118

Article first published online: 22 AUG 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrd.50641

Key Points

  • raindrops form in slightly diluted cloudy volumes at the tops of bubble cores
  • DSDs in non-diluted DSDs in undiluted cores contain more large droplets
  • entrainment is not of crucial importance in the formation of first raindrops
