Researchers turn to the ocean to help unravel the mysteries of cloud formation
Description: Sea spray aerosol particles occur naturally at the ocean-air boundary and can help to seed new clouds. A new work shows how the particles' chemical composition influences their abilities to take in moisture from the air, which indicates whether the particle will help to form a cloud - a key to many basic problems in climate prediction.
