Dependence of droplet effective radii near cloud tops on cloud-top temperature calculated based on simulations with three different settings and from the retrieval results derived from Terra/MODIS measurements over the East China Sea on April 2, 2003. Simulation profiles are calculated in a the control run, b the run characterized by a homogenous CN field, and c the run with doubled CN. Plotted radii are averaged individually in the northern and southern halves of the analysis domain. Adapted from Iguchi et al. (2008)
