Abstract

This work addresses the interactions of aerosols, clouds and dynamics in case of a so-called Medicane. This type of cyclone occurs over the Mediterranean Sea, showing similarities to Hurricanes over the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Due to the high wind speed of the Medicane, a large amount of sea salt particles is emitted over the sea. This can influence the development of the Medicane, its associated clouds, and precipitation.
