been implemented within GEOS-5 ( Barahona et al. 2014 ). Additionally, we explore the sensitivity of Nadine to dust absorption by varying the assumed dust optical properties in the simulations that permit aerosol–radiation interaction and both aerosol–radiation and aerosol–cloud interaction in order to explore the sensitivity of Nadine to dust absorption. This work is novel in that it presents global high-resolution simulations of a tropical system with various considerations for how dust is

, and section 5 summarizes the analysis of the observations and simulations. Conclusions are provided in section 6 . 2. Data and NU-WRF Data from CPL and dropsondes collected during the HS3 campaign are utilized for this study. CPL is a multiwavelength backscatter lidar that measures the optical and radiative properties of cirrus clouds and aerosols ( McGill and Hlavka 2015 ). The AVAPS system carries up to 88 dropsondes that provide high vertical resolution (2-Hz sampling) profiles of

environmental and overstorm GH payloads. FOV = field of view. CPL is a multiwavelength backscatter lidar ( McGill et al. 2002 , 2004 ). CPL provides information on the radiative and optical properties of cirrus, subvisual cirrus clouds, and aerosols ( McGill and Hlavka 2015 ). CPL utilizes a high-repetition rate, low-pulse energy transmitter, and photon-counting detectors and measures the total (aerosol plus Rayleigh) attenuated backscatter as a function of altitude at each wavelength. For transmissive
