(From author). Comments: First 3D stochastic/fractal model of cirrus; first detailed analysis & explanation of power spectra of ice water content, including first observations of 50-km scale break and mixing-induced steepening of spectrum; first demonstration of the potential effect of wind shear on radiative fluxes by changing fall-streak orientation. Has spawned work on the effect of 3D photon transport on the radiative effects of cirrus clouds.
