liquid water loading

The amount of liquid water present within an air parcel as cloud droplets, rain, or ice, usually expressed in percent or fraction by weight (e.g., as a liquid water mixing ratio rL) or volume.

The higher the liquid water loading, the greater the average density and colder the virtual temperature of the parcel.
