Modelling the formation and chemistry of the hill cap cloud on Tenerife during the ACE-2 'HILLCLOUD' experiment

    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

    Abstract

    The HILLCLOUD experiment in ACE-2 used a hill cap cloud forming on the island of Tenerife as a natural flow through reactor to study the response of the cloud microphysics to the aerosol properties and gases in the airstream entering the cloud and to study the processing of aerosol and trace gases within the cloud. A numerical model was used to simulate the conditions observed during the field experiment, and to study the processes that may be taking place. Overall, a strong correlation was found between accumulation mode aerosol and droplet number concentration with very large numbers of droplets observed during polluted episodes.
