Short summary
A new approach describing the relationship between ice crystal mass (m) and dimension (D) is derived, characterizing it as a set of equally realizable parameters based on the natural variability in cloud conditions observed by aircraft over the Great Plains. Results from this approach address shortcomings of microphysical parameterization schemes and remote sensing retrievals that employ a single mD relation for a given ice species or environment.
A new approach describing the relationship between ice crystal mass (m) and dimension (D) is...
