      Investigating ice nucleation in cirrus clouds with an aerosol-enabled multiscale modeling framework

      Chengzhu Zhang, Minghuai Wang, Hugh Morrison, Richard C. J. Somerville, Kai Zhang, Xiaohong Liu and Jui-Lin F. Li

      Accepted manuscript online: 10 SEP 2014 01:53AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014MS000343

      Key Points

      • Aerosol-depended ice nucleation is enabled in PNNL MMF
      • New MMF captures persistent ice supersaturation and low ice number in cirrus
      • MMF is powerful in emulating cloud processes evolving over short time scale

      An updated treatment of soil texture and associated hydraulic properties in a global land modeling system

      Gabriëlle J.M. DeLannoy, Randal D. Koster, Rolf H. Reichle, Sarith P.P. Mahanama and Qing Liu

      Accepted manuscript online: 4 SEP 2014 11:48AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014MS000330

      Key Points

      • Generated new global composite database of soil mineral and organic texture
      • Derived soil hydraulic parameters for global land model simulations
      • Reduced bias of simulated soil moisture versus in situ and satellite data
