This assumption, discussed in detail in [12], implies that the interphase mass, momentum, and energy exchange processes are fast enough, so that both phases remain on the saturation line following the variation of local pressure; the velocity slip between the phases is also not taken into account (both phases have the same pressure and velocity).

Appleman Appleman found that when temperature was plotted against dewpoint, clouds lying between the lines of temperature equal to dewpoint (T = Td, the saturation line) and temperatures at 80-percent of dewpoint (T = 0.8 * Td, now known as the Appleman line) held supercooled liquid water when atmospheric temperatures were below 0 degrees C.
