Rain In Cumulus over the Ocean experiment
GCSS Boundary Cloud Working Group
Alexander Los, Erik van Meijgaard, Stephan de Roode and Geert Lenderink are greatly acknowledged for providing datasources and help when needed and for the many useful suggestions on the case description. Frederic Burnet and Jean-Louis Brenguier are thanked for estimating the active cloud droplet number. We also acknowledge Jim Hudson for providing the CCN data. And of course, we highly appreciate the enthousiasm and ideas of all the scientists involved with the organization and implementation of the RICO experiment.
