Title: A numerical study of the effect of cloud nuclei on the initiation of rain from warm clouds 
Author: Lee, Seung-Man
Date: 1978
Abstract: The effects of the cloud nucleus size distribution and number concentration on rain initiation from shallow maritime warm clouds are examined in a one-dimensional, time-dependent cylindrical cloud model. Calculations include nucleation, condensation on both nuclei and drops, collection of drops and scavenging of nucleus-size particles to drops. It was found that nuclei of mass about 10^-15 g are most efficient for warm rain development and the number concentration normally observed near Hawaii is the optimum concentration for maximum rainfall.
