中文摘要:
      冰云是影响气候变化最为重要的因子之一,其生命周期的变化在很大程度上决定了冰云的气候辐射效应。冰云粒子下降末速度是影响冰云生命周期的关键参数。为了开展对冰云粒子下降末速度的研究,利用兰州大学半干旱气候与环境监测站Ka波段毫米波云雷达2013年8月至2015年7月连续观测数据,反演了冰云粒子的下降末速度(Vt),并根据雷达反射率因子(Z)与Vt的关系计算了拟合因子ab的值;在此基础上应用聚类分析方法,对比分析了4种不同特性冰云ZVt和拟合因子ab的时、空分布特征,进而尝试通过参数垂直分布特征识别研究云中不同位置上云微物理过程的变化。结果表明:冰云粒子下降末速度的分布与雷达反射率因子有很好的对应,最大频率都出现在距离地面约7 km高度处,且具有显著的季节变化,粒子下降末速度在暖季较冷季可增大25%,峰值出现在6月和9月;云层较厚且持续时间长的第一、三类冰云,其雷达反射率因子、粒子下降末速度及拟合因子ab的平均值都显著大于云层较薄且持续时间短的第二、四类云。垂直方向上,ZVt和拟合因子b从云顶到云底随着高度的降低呈现先增大后减小的趋势,体现了云粒子在云顶区域成核和水汽凝华效应,随着粒子在下落过程中碰并增长,云滴粒子逐渐增大,水汽的凝华和粒子的聚合起主要作用,最后在云底部分,云粒子蒸发、升华减小消亡的过程。由此表明中纬度干旱半干旱地区冰云是从云顶到云底自上而下的形成过程。
英文摘要:
      Ice clouds are one of the most important components in the climate system, and the parameterization of their life cycle in climate models has always been a prominent issue. The terminal fall velocity of ice cloud particles is a key parameter affecting the life cycle of ice clouds. The Ka-band Zenith Radar (KAZR), which has been deployed at the Semi-Arid Climate and Environment Observatory of Lanzhou University (SACOL) since July 2013, has been continuously operated for six years. By using continuous observations of the Ka-band millimeter-wave cloud radar from August 2013 to July 2015, we retrieve the particle terminal fall velocity (Vt) and calculated the values of the coefficients a and b based on the relationship between the radar reflectivity factor Z and Vt. We then further divide the ice clouds into four categories using cluster analysis, and discuss the spatiotemporal distribution of the reflectivity, the terminal fall velocity, the coefficients a and b of the four different types of ice cloud. Furthermore, we also study the change of microphysical processes at different locations inside the clouds through the parameter vertical distribution feature recognition. The results show that the distribution of Vt corresponds well to Z, and the maximum frequency appears at about 7 km altitude above the ground level (AGL). In addition, they all show significant seasonal changes and the terminal fall velocity can be increased by 25% in the warm season compared to that in the cold season. The average values of radar reflectivity factor, particle terminal fall velocity and fitting coefficient a and b of the first and third types of ice clouds, which are thicker with longer duration, are significantly larger than those of the second and fourth types of clouds, which are thinner clouds with shorter duration. Seasonal changes of parameters of all types of ice clouds are relatively consistent, i.e., they all peak in June and September. In the vertical direction, Z, Vt and fitting coefficient b from the top of to the bottom of the cloud show a tendency to increase first and then decrease with the decrease of the height of the clouds, which reflects the microphysical processes at different locations in the cloud. In the top part of the cloud, the nucleation of particles and the deposition of water vapor in the clouds are dominant. With the decrease of cloud height, the deposition of water vapor and the aggregation of particles play a major role, and the cloud particles gradually increase. In the cloud layer close to the cloud bottom, the cloud particles evaporate and sublimate, and the particle size decreases. This indicates that the formation of ice clouds in arid and semi-arid areas in the middle latitudes of China is a top-down process from the top to the bottom of the cloud. While the distribution characteristics of fitting coefficient b in the vertical direction also indicate that this parameter can be used for the identification of different physical processes within the cloud.
