Abstract:Simulations revealed that observations of a sharp change in the RH profile across the melting layer, from saturated air with respect to ice above to subsaturated air with respect to water below, can develop in response to microphysical processes alone. However, dynamic processes, such as sufficiently strong downdrafts, may allow the air to remain subsaturated for T < 0°C. Sensitivity tests revealed that in the absence of dynamic processes, the dichotomy in the RH field across the melting level always developed.
