Short summary
A new numerical model for clouds is presented. It is designed for detailed studies of the small-scale behavior of cloud droplets within a domain large enough to model cloud field. To achieve this, droplets are modeled in a Lagrangian manner and calculations are done on GPU accelerators. Comparison with models that use Eulerian descriptions of droplets reveals discrepancies in the amount of precipitation. This suggests that some effects important for rain production are missing in current models.
