Cloud-cloud collisions lead to heavier precipitation

Cloud-cloud collisions are very important for creating intensive rain showers, whilst individual clouds have more difficulty growing bigger. Researchers have used many high-resolution models to investigate how precipitation is affected by increasing temperatures. The study has been published in …
