Identification
Title(s):Main Title: First Semi-Annual Research Report: Literature Review on the Impact of Regional-Scale Surface Heterogeneity on Boundary-Layer Cloud Fields
Description(s):Abstract: The feedback process between cumulus cloud fields and surface properties is a source of uncertainty in climate and weather prediction models. The interaction between surface and atmosphere is influenced by the heterogeneity of the surface. The main goal of this research is to assess the relative contribution of the surface heterogeneity on the variability of boundary layer cloud fields. According to literature, surface heterogeneity induces secondary circulations. These structures influence the boundary layer and the cloud statistics. To study these processes on a regional scale while still resolving the scale of the cumulus clouds, the ICON model will be used. Model output will be compared with observations to determine the reliability of the results.
