Researchers study water cycle and cloud formation and design computer algorithm models to understand impact.
A rainbow-like feature known as a ‘glory’ has been seen by ESA’s Venus Express orbiter in the atmosphere of our nearest neighbor – the first time one has been fully imaged on another planet.
While manmade pollution and other natural emissions are often blamed for their role in global warming, new research from the University of Manchester suggests that they could actually play a role in cooling the world’s climate.
A new study from Columbia Engineering and the Georgia Institute of Technology shows – for the first time – certain volatile organic gases can promote cloud formation in ways atmospheric scientists have never before considered.
NASA satellite imagery revealed that Cyclone Felleng is packing some powerful thunderstorms with overshooting cloud tops.
Atmospheric aerosol particles have a significant effect on climate.

Researchers have found that areas near commercial airports sometimes experience a small but measurable increase in rain and snow when aircraft take off and land under certain atmospheric conditions.
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...
