Figure 4(a) is the plot from 1-minute data: when equal advection velocity of 10m/s is applied uniformly for all cells (see 3 mm/h at 10m/s), the cell range is more exaggerated than if 6m/s were used for the stratiform rain cells.

This makes the deposit distinct from the stratiform copper/cobalt deposits that predominate on the Zaire/Zambia Copper Belt.
In reality, however, low-lying stratiform clouds spread over the oceans when the air above them rises and cools, causing the water vapor held in it to condense.
The principle exploration target on the property is a Sullivan-type stratiform sediment-hosted massive sulfide deposit.
Work planned on this case for the next 4 years will focus on stratiform precipitation biases, feedbacks between microphysics and dynamics, and the sensitivity of the simulated aerosol-cloud-precipitation interactions to the representation of microphysical processes.
