Paper Abstract

In this work, we have documented the characteristics of cloud hydrometeors over Indian region and surrounding oceans during pre-monsoon and monsoon seasons, using satellite data and cloud resolving model simulations. We have identified spatio-temporal variability of hydrometeors and explained them with the help of physical properties of the atmosphere. Further, we have performed cloud-resolving simulations of the WRF-Chem to understand the observed variability of cloud liquid water and rainfall. We have also found changes in cloud properties during high and low aerosol loading, leading to changes in the characteristics of intraseasonal oscillation of Indian summer monsoon.
