CVP-funded research tests microphysical schemes in the WRF model

esearch supported by NOAA CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Atmospheric Science. The paper by Li et al., "The sensitivity of simulated shallow cumulus convection and cold pools to microphysics," explores how two separate microphysical schemes (the Thompson and Morrison schemes) used in nested Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model simulations affect the generation of precipitation and evaporation in the model.
