Title: An explicit microphysics thunderstorm model.
Author: Solomon, R.; Medaglia, C.M.; Adamo, C.; Dietrick, S.; Mugnai, A.; Ceipidor, U. Biader.;
Source: International Journal of Modeling and Simulation. 25(2): 112-118
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: The authors present a brief description of a 1.5-dimensional thunderstorm model with a lightning parameterization that utilizes an explicit microphysical scheme to model lightning-producing clouds. The main intent of this work is to describe the basic microphysical and electrical properties of the model, with a small illustrative section to show how the model may be used to determine the electrical properties of clouds.
Keywords: thunderstorm, lightning, atmospheric modeling
