CLW, Ice Water Content, LWC, Cloud Liquid Water/Ice
It is the amount of liquid water per unit volume of air
Cloud Liquid/Ice Water is usually expressed either in g/m3 or g/kg. It varies greatly from cloud to cloud. On the average, for a typical cloud it varies from 0.05 to 3 g/m3 . Cloud Liquid Water plays an important role in the transport of energy (latent heat) in the earth-atmosphere system.
