Short summary
The break-up of ice crystals in clouds is a possible secondary ice multiplication process to explain observations of very high concentrations of small ice crystals at cold temperature. Here, the process is modeled by considering shocks between fragile aggregates (assemblage of pristine crystals) and large densely rimed crystals of selected sizes. The simulations of two storms illustrate the perturbations caused by the break-up effect (precipitation, ice concentration enhancement).
