Short summary
Climate models include descriptions of how cloud droplets form from particles in the atmosphere. We have developed an efficient parameterization of this process by building an emulator of a detailed model, which can accurately predict cloud droplet number concentrations and potentially include additional physics and chemistry. We further show that using different parameterizations could influence droplet number estimates in global models and their aerosol indirect effect on climate.
