AS3.3Atmospheric Ice Particles
|Convener: J. Curtius | Co-Conveners: T. Koop , C. Voigt|
Current investigations on atmospheric ice particles include the formation, chemistry, microphysics and radiative transfer in ice and mixed-phase clouds. We invite papers related to atmospheric ice, mixed-phase clouds and water vapor, based on observational (satellite, aircraft and ground-based) data, laboratory, modeling, and theoretical studies. Topics of interest include studies on the life cycle, properties, coverage and variability of ice in all regions of the atmosphere. We invite studies focused on ice supersaturation inside and outside of clouds, ice nucleation (homogeneous and heterogeneous nucleation including various ice nuclei such as biological IN, processed or unprocessed mineral dust and volcanic ashes, soot, glassy substances, etc.), dynamical and thermodynamical variability, trace gas uptake, impact of organic aerosol and pollution, contrails, ice multiplication in clouds, artificial ice crystal shattering, instrument intercomparisons, and recent developments in instrumentation and methods.
