Gruber, S.; Blahak, U.; Haenel, F.; Kottmeier, C.; Leisner, T.; Muskatel, H. et al. (2019): A Process Study on Thinning of Arctic Winter Cirrus Clouds With High‐Resolution ICON‐ART Simulations. In: J. Geophys. Res. Atmos. 498 (21), S. 339. DOI: 10.1029/2018JD029815.
"In this study, cloud‐resolving simulations of a case study for a limited area of the hibernal Arctic were performed with the atmospheric modeling system ICON‐ART (ICOsahedral Nonhydrostatic‐Aerosol and Reactive Trace gases). A thorough comparison with data both from satellite as well as aircraft measurement is presented to validate the simulations. In addition, the model is applied to clarify the microphysical processes occurring when introducing artificial aerosol particles into the upper troposphere with the aim of modifying cirrus clouds in the framework of climate engineering."
