the drizzle process. These results are broadly consistent with the Sandu and Stevens (2011) study, pointing to the need to understand what controls N d in the SCT. Several cases of spatial transitions from closed- to open-cellular convection over the southeastern Pacific Ocean were observed during the VAMOS Ocean–Cloud–Atmosphere–Land Study (VOCALS) Regional Experiment ( Terai et al. 2014 ) and showed that within regions of open cells, active Cu clouds that draw aerosol from the surface mixed

, the background aerosol concentration in the surface mixed layer ranges from 200 cm −3 (CSET; see section 2c for details) to >400 cm −3 [VAMOS Ocean–Cloud–Atmosphere–Land Study (VOCALS); southeastern Pacific; see Allen et al. 2011 ). A recent model study ( Chen et al. 2016 ) suggested that the number concentration of activated droplet is approximately equal to the initial in the Sc regime. Here, we simply assumed that the typical initial activated (i.e., before first parcel cycling) in
