Abstract : We will use a model developed for stratospheric sulfuric acid aerosol layer and polar stratospheric clouds (PSC) to study the clouds on Venus. This model includes a nucleation parameterization developed for stratospheric conditions that we aim to improve to take into account very low relative humidities observed on Venus. In this presentation we will describe the model used, the modifications required for applying the terrestrial stratospheric model to Venus, and the first results obtained.
