1 November 2006Mathematical model of crystal cloud particles over the angles of their big diameters' deviation from the horizontal plane
We propose a model of distribution of angular deviation of large particles orientation in a crystal cloud from the
horizontal position of their big diameters in the process of their fall due to gravity. A single-parameter distribution of
particles over angles of orientation is obtained. The distribution parameter is shown to be dependent on the particle size
and the rate of energy dissipation in the turbulence cells. The dependence turns out to be much stronger than those in
models proposed earlier.
