This is an interesting and well written paper which discusses the variability of cloud water content, droplet number, and correlation between the two in stratiform clouds. The key findings seem to be the positive correlation between the water content and drop number, and the vertical dependence of this correlation, increasing towards cloud top. The consequences of these results for autoconversion parametrizations is discussed, showing that including the correlation is crucially important for
