Anomalous scaling of cumulus cloud boundaries

Author information

Abstract

The geometrical properties of cumulus clouds modeled by a numerical technique called large-eddy simulation are investigated. Surface-volume analyses reconfirm previous scaling results based on satellite data. This technique allows for the first time a direct analysis of the scaling behavior of cloud boundaries of individual clouds.
