First Observations of Biological Particles in High-Altitude Clouds


www.universetoday.com

A team of atmospheric chemists has moved closer to what’s considered the “holy grail” of climate change science: the first-ever direct detections of biological particles within ice clouds. Ice in Clouds Experiment - Layer Clouds (ICE-L) team mounted a mass spectrometer onto a C-130 aircraft and made a series of high-speed flights through a type of cloud known as a wave cloud. Analysis of the ice crystals revealed that the particles that started their growth were made up almost entirely of either

Never thought that cloud formation could be so interesting.

Getting a better understanding of cloud formation can really help forecasting.

Eventually, it could even give us a precise idea of how climate was during the caveman times.

I'm interested in this also because i've seen some really odd looking clouds lately, much more dense than usual.
