Cloud chamber research

Clouds play a crucial part in regulating climate, but precious little is actually known about clouds’ inner workings and their role on Earth. A group of Michigan Technological University scientists are working to change that by using a cloud chamber. This chamber allows researchers to study cloud processes under realistic temperatures, pressures, and humidity levels, mimicking conditions from sea level to the lower levels of the stratosphere, where jet planes fly.
