G. Pandithurai, S. Dipu, Thara V. Prabha, R. S. Maheskumar, J. R. Kulkarni and B. N. Goswami Aerosol effect on droplet spectral dispersion in warm continental cumuli Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres (1984–2012) 117

Article first published online: 17 AUG 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011JD016532

Key Points

  • Aerosols increase the relative dispersion of continental cumuli
  • Droplet dispersion offsets the cooling up to 39% in continental cumuli
  • AIE is lesser in sub-adiabatic clouds due to inhomogeneous mixing
