[{"title":"Data from a modelling study on the importance of Aitken mode particles for cloud sustenance in the high Arctic","summary":"This dataset presents the model output from two large-eddy simulation models. The model simulations were performed with the aim to investigate the importance of Aitken mode particles (diameters ~25-80 nm) for cloud sustenance in the high Arctic during the summertime.\r\n\r\nThe simulations are based on a period that was characterised by a persistent, low-level stratiform mixed-phase cloud observed in the summer of 2008 during the Arctic Summer Cloud Ocean Study (ASCOS) expedition with icebreaker Oden in high-latitude areas in the Arctic Ocean.\r\n\r\nThe outputs from the two models contain cloud variables, i.e. dynamical and microphysical properties of the simulated cloud for the selected region and simulated period of 12 hours.","citations":"Bulatovic I, Igel AL, Leck C, Heintzenberg J, Riipinen I, Ekman AML (2020).
