the Atlantic Stratocumulus Transition Experiment (ASTEX) in 1992 provide one of the most widely used datasets for understanding the SCT and are perhaps the first measurements of cloud microphysical properties in the SCT. The two Lagrangian transition experiments carried out in ASTEX showed that drizzle occurred with sufficient frequency and rate to be important in MBL energy and moisture budgets ( Bretherton and Pincus 1995 ; Bretherton et al. 1995 ). Surface-based radar measurements in ASTEX

-scavenging process, which is an irreversible process. Recently, by using a simplified aerosol budget model, driven by observations from aircraft and satellites, Wood et al. (2012) showed that the geographical and temporal variability of global MBL and are highly impacted by coalescence scavenging. This poses a potential positive feedback in the aerosol–cloud–precipitation interaction as suggested by recent modeling studies ( Yang et al. 2012 ; Berner et al. 2013 ) such that the increase in can reduce
