Short summary
This paper introduces a novel approach to simulating ice-free clouds. The key process is formation and transport of cloud droplets that are represented through Lagrangian particles referred to as super-droplets. Each super-droplet represents a multitude of natural cloud droplets. The essential component of the scheme that makes it different and more efficient from previous approaches is the presence of super-droplets only within a cloud.
