Latest Cloud condensation nuclei Stories
A lot of large particles of dust and pollen in the atmosphere may make your nose twitch, but they can lead directly to greater precipitation in clouds.
A new research project by Tel Aviv University researchers and their colleagues shows that where there's "smoke" there may be significant consequences for local weather patterns, rainfall and thunderstorms.
By Phillips, Vaughan T J DeMott, Paul J; Andronache, Constantin ABSTRACT A novel, flexible framework is proposed for parameterizing the heterogeneous nucleation of ice within clouds.
An international team of scientists, headed by Prof. Daniel Rosenfeld of the Institute of Earth Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, has come up with a surprising finding to the disputed issue of whether air pollution increases or decreases rainfall.
By Ayash, Tarek Gong, Sunling; Jia, Charles Q ABSTRACT Sea salt aerosols play a dual role in affecting the atmospheric radiative balance. Directly, sea salt particles scatter the incoming solar radiation and absorb the outgoing terrestrial radiation.
Los Angeles to resume controversial cloud-seeding project LOS ANGELES, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Facing severe water supply shortage, Los Angeles plans to launch a controversial cloud- seeding project that they believe will boost rainfall and raise the levels of local reservoirs, a newspaper report said Monday.
Evaluating one way of how clouds can form. To understand this method it’s important to understand a few terms. The first one is Cloud Condensation Nuclei. The CCN can consist of anything from dust, dirt, salt anything that is floating in the air. The second thing is moisture. There must be moisture present in the atmosphere to condense on the CCN to form a droplet. Next step to the process is what is known as collision and coalescence. This is the process of many CCN’s running...
