Aerosol-Cloud Interactions

Without them, there would be no clouds. Aerosols are essential for the formation of cumulus, cirrus and stratus clouds. They also affect the clouds’ ability to reflect sunlight. “These particles play a major role in the climate system,” stated Dr. Evelyn Freney. “However, the impact of anthropogenic emissions on global warming is still under debate.”
Through a combination of aerosol size and composition measurements, she strives to accurately describe the interactions between these particles and water droplets, which are the precursors of clouds. This data will then be incorporated into weather and climate models in order to improve their accuracy and contribute to developing new emission control protocols.
