Clouds and Cloud Physics

Cloud physics is the study of the physical processes that lead to the formation, growth and precipitation of clouds.

People specializing in this area


Jerry Y. Harrington

Use sophisticated numerical models and participate in field experiments designed to unravel the reasons behind why clouds behave they way they do in nature. Join my group and become an essential part of a team that develops and uses innovative cloud modeling techniques. Some of our field work will take us to remote places in the arctic wilderness where we shall investigate the structure and dynamics of arctic clouds.
