  Information - AS1.18 Ice and Humidity in the Troposphere

Event Information
This session focusses on the formation, processing and atmospheric
interactions of ice particles as well as relative humidity distributions in
and around ice clouds in the troposphere. Contributions based on field
observations, laboratory investigations, aerosol chamber studies and modelling
are welcome.

A wide range of aspects of the tropospheric ice phase are intended to be
covered in this session, including: supersaturation distributions in and
around ice clouds, homogeneous and heterogeneous ice nucleation, secondary ice
formation, processing of ice crystals in mixed phase and cirrus clouds,
heterogeneous chemistry and uptake of trace gases on ice, morphology of ice
crystals, inclusion of trace substances in the ice matrix, microphysical
properties of mixed-phase and ice clouds, transport processes in mixed phase
and ice clouds, radiative properties of mixed phase and ice clouds, influence
of ice characteristics on precipitation processes, and the representation and
role of the ice phase in weather and climate models.

We particularly encourage submissions highlighting results from major national
and international projects focused on the ice-related processes, such as the
German Collaborative Research Center "The Tropospheric Ice Phase", the
"PAZI-2" (Particles and Cirrus) project, as well as field and laboratory
experiments such as "CRYSTAL FACE", "CLACE", "CIRRUS", "TWP-ICE", "CR-AVE",
"AquaVIT", and others.
