Clouds are important players for the Earth’s atmosphere. They significantly influence the hydrological cycle as well as the energy budget of the atmosphere, and in turn also atmospheric flows due to diabatic heating (e.g. latent heat and/or interaction with radiation). Although clouds are composed by a myriad of small water particles, they can form macroscopic pattern (cloud structures) in which diabatic heat sources are concentrated. This effect might additionally affect atmospheric flows.
