Lead Institution: Colgate University
Principal Investigator: Eric Muller
Atmospheric ice nucleation affects cloud radiative properties, lifetime and precipitation behavior with far-reaching implications for global climate. While homogeneous freezing of water droplets only occurs at temperatures below 235 K, heterogeneous...
