Science

Descriptions of key aspects of Aerosols and Clouds, Convection and Precipitation are below. ACCP is motivated by the strong coupling of the two designated observables. Aerosols are a fundamental and enabling component to the formation of clouds and precipitation. Precipitation removes aerosols and deep convection and other storms loft and redistribute aerosols.
