Abstract
To study the response of a medium to a localized disturbance, the coupled aerosol-beam equations-in which the dominant interactions are diffusive mass transport and conductive energy transport-are solved numerically, thus giving the spatio-temporal behavior of the propagating beam and the irradiated aerosols. In the context of the cloud clearing problem, a deleterious effect of recondensation is assessed. We examine the effect of turbulence on the distribution of droplet sizes during the recondensation. Results relevant to propagation and imaging are given.
