Abstract Title: Cloud microphysics: a concept map for studying, instruction, and analysis
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: A concept map is presented for cloud microphysics, from the initial lift-generating energy input to a moist air parcel to the dissipation of a cloud of droplets. This story line is told on the concept map following three different levels: the macro-physical level addressing the "big picture" processes, the micro-physical level describing those processes via the interactions of particles, and the formal mathematical level of geophysical equations and formulae. Our map depicts the relationships between these three levels and offers insights into the creation and processing of such a map in both geoscience research and teaching.
