Large-eddy simulation of precipitating cumulus clouds

Simulation of cumulus clouds under conditions observed during the Rain in Cumulus over the Ocean (RICO) field campaign. Within the gray volume, there is cloud liquid water, simulated with the PyCLES code developed by Kyle Pressel et al. Blue colors indicate rain. The simulation uses 5th-order weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) schemes for discretization of all fluxes (of momentum, entropy, and total water), at a resolution of 50 m in the horizontal and 40 m in the vertical.
