Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study on cloud formation shows that climate change models may have underestimated the cooling effect of sulfur aerosol particles in the atmosphere. These aerosols mitigate greenhouse gases by reflecting sunlight. They also act as seeds for cloud condensation by allowing humidity to accumulate around them — forming droplets and then clouds. To investigate the role of sulfur aerosols in cloud formation and climate change,...
