Abstract:Despite the time and space constraints placed on the results by the observed evolution of the updrafts, the calculations showed that the process of rain formation in warm convective clouds is simple and efficient, provided that giant and ultragiant CCN are present near cloud base. While more complex processes leading to drop spectra broadening, such as mixing, and stochastic condensation most likely also occur in nature, they appear to be unnecessary to explain the rapid formation of rain in warm convective clouds.
