sensitivity of warm clouds to aerosol perturbations is one of the important science questions that has arisen in studies of cloud–aerosol–precipitation interactions. It is a major source of uncertainty that thwarts the accurate prediction of future climate change ( Wood 2009 ). The observed responses of warm low-level cloud properties to aerosols in a marine environment have been studied in recent years based on multiple observations, such as those from satellite-based remote sensing ( Nakajima et al

clouds and their association with aerosols, a field campaign, Routine ARM Aerial Facility (AAF) Clouds with Low Optical Water Depths (CLOWD) Optical Radiative Observations (RACORO) organized by DOE has been conducted at the ARM Southern Great Plains (SGP) site ( Vogelmann et al. 2012 ). The five-month campaign provides a first extended-term airborne and ground-based cloud and aerosol information for various continental boundary layer clouds. The RACORO campaign has already been examined by some
