Merge or die – The fate of clouds and (covid restricted) cocktail parties
How the fate of simulated rain cells improves understanding of tropical storms. Stay tuned, as we learn about rain tracking algorithms and analyze the merging or decaying of competing clouds. Finally, we will see why cold pools affect cloud clustering similarly, as covid restrictions affect a cocktail party…

Clouds can party hard!
Clouds like to cuddle and cluster. Cloud clustering is crucial to understanding the formation of tropical storms. This article will brush up your basics on convection, introduce you to fascinating atmospheric phenomena and reveal, how the clustering of clouds can be compared to a cocktail party…

Surely, everyone has wondered how 99 Festivalbesucherinnen (female festival visitors) become 100 Festivalbesucher (male festival visitors) as soon as one man stumbles into the dancing and partying mob. Poof, all the confidently partying women are just gone.

Figure 1: Four dimensions of a nice vehicle. The red volume might be a formula one car while the green volume might represent a rally car.
Have you ever asked yourself why you cannot have a vehicle that is as fast as a rocket, as agile as a formula one car and as robust as a monster truck at the same time? The rocket might be lightning fast, though it will probably fail on tight bends. The formula one car may be quite fast and agile, though it will probably break down quite fast if not carefully driven on asphalt. Well, and a monster truck might be very robust, though it may be slow in comparison. In many fields of research, scientists encounter the same issues as described above. Every new development comes with certain downsides. If you try to satisfy every need, you might get a Jack of all trades, master of none.
