Randall (1980) and Deardorff (1980) hypothesized that if the inversion stratification above the stratocumulus cloud
top satisfies [DELTA][[theta].
The "Main regional processes contributing to coupled climate model SST biases" section discusses regional error sources for the SST biases, selected for their perceived importance: the stratocumulus cloud
deck, deep convection, oceanic eddies, surface winds, and model resolution.
for stratocumulus clouds
supersaturation is in the range of 0.

, precipitation and boundary layer structure sampled along 20 s during VOCALS-REx.
Sandu, 2008: Relationship between drizzle rate, liquid water path and droplet concentration at the scale of a stratocumulus cloud
In the specific context of the eastern Pacific climate, modeling has shown that stratocumulus cloud
decks are essential for key features, such as the asymmetry about the equator in SST and precipitation and an annual cycle dominated by the semiannual component (Philander et al.
I've been having a recurring dream of me driving up a mountainside, all the way up to a grassy flat under a clear, blue sky, or maybe a sky filled with cumulus or stratocumulus clouds
About two hours, steaming distance from the target a few stratocumulus clouds
started drifting from the west giving a ghostly appearance to the hull of the ships in the murky light that filtered through.
Rather than seeding storm clouds or hurricanes directly, the idea is to target marine stratocumulus clouds
, which cover an estimated quarter of the world's oceans, to prevent hurricanes from forming.
During much of year, only small amounts of cumulus (puffy clouds) and stratocumulus clouds
form with a higher base but these clouds increase during winter.
If stratus clouds clump into dark, rounded clouds, fetch your raincoat, too, because heavier rain is probable with these stratocumulus clouds
By blasting seawater droplets into the air from wind-powered ships, they believe stratocumulus clouds
could be made thick and white enough to bounce more solar radiation back into space to change the earth's temperature.
