2 even small cumuli that produce precipitation that evaporates in the sub-cloud layer can form a cold pool. The chilled air is denser than surrounding air and spreads out beneath the cloud where it can lift the surrounding air sometimes enough to generate new cloud cells. In some cases neighboring precipitating clouds can produce cool outflows that run into each other and cause lifting of the air leading to the merger of the neighboring clouds (Fig. 3). The merged cloud cell is often wider and deeper than the parent clouds and is more likely to produce rain.

4), sedimentation, breakup, and advection can greatly influence the concentrations of ice particles. 3) allows for both horizontal and vertical variations in IN. Because the aerosol contributing to IN are large and large aerosol generally decrease with height (Georgi and Kleinjung 1968; DeMott et al. 2003b), we expect that IN concentrations generally decrease with height as well. 2 Principles of Cloud and Precipitation Formation 31 One should not therefore be surprised that many observations of ice particle concentrations do not show a good correlation with temperature (Gultepe et al.
