Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

The authors present an example of the benefits of a Lagranzian approach in cloud modeling. Idealized Lagranzian simulations, incorporating the secondary ice production via rime-splintering, are used to investigate the evolution of air parcels. The method contributes firstly to better understanding of complex processes by simplifying them and secondly to improve our knowledge for the initiation of the secondary ice production via rime-splintering. The article’s subject is clearly presented with conclusions of high scientific relevance. It is well structured and provides detailed evidence on the cloud microphysics evolution published in the community. My only comment to the authors is to provide a more explanatory justification (or a reference) for not using the parameterization of rain freezing at simulations with T = -5 °C (line 142).
