Paper Abstract

A microphysics model was used to simulate vertical profiles of drop size distributions in very low stratus clouds and their associated subcloud regions. Drop size distribution profiles produced by the model for two different sets of atmospheric conditions specified at a reference level are presented. These profiles were compared with those reported by other authors and found to yield characteristics generally consistent with the measured values.
