dc.description.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. en_US
