Unclouding the behavior of clouds

How air pollution creates larger and longer lasting storm clouds has been a topic of intense debate in climatology circles. Now, a new investigation that finally reveals the atmospheric mechanism at work also shows how pollution plays into climate warming. Previously, scientists had thought that pollution causes larger and longer-lasting storm clouds by making thunderheads […]

Predator-prey dynamics used to model cloud systems

Mathematical formulae that describe the population dynamics of prey animals such as gazelles and their predators have been used to model the relationship between cloud systems and rain. Documented in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the novel approach may help address the paucity of knowledge concerning cloud formation and the role that […]
