Clouds are the clue to climate predictions

Neil Donahue, professor of chemical engineering, chemistry, and engineering and public policy at Carnegie Mellon, discusses how organic compounds emitted by trees make particles that affect climate change. His research group has uncovered the processes behind the formation and evolution of small atmospheric particles free from the influence of pollution. The findings are key to creating accurate models to understand and predict global climate change.
