Cloud Formation Stratocumulus

Cloud Formation Stratocumulus

Researchers from Columbia Engineering and Georgia Tech have shown that certain volatile organic gases can promote cloud formation in a way never considered before by atmospheric scientists. The work could help improve models used for studying global climate change. This NASA photo, taken from the International Space Station, shows stratocumulus clouds over the Pacific Ocean.
