Cold Air Drainage Flows and their Relation to the Formation of Nocturnal Convective Clouds at the Eastern Andes of South Ecuador

The development of clouds has many causes, not all of those are examined. In consideration of rainfall behaviour and distribution knowledge of cloud formation, processes in the tropics are of particular importance. Clouds are part of the hydrological cycle, influencing water resources and the energy...
