Ice, clouds and climate
Ice particles and ice nuclei play an important role in the microphysics of clouds from the equator to the poles. Unfortunately our knowledge of ice formation and ice nuclei is poor in all geographic areas. This symposium will look at ice formation and precipitation in general as well as looking at Polar Regions in particular where in-situ measurements are rare and ice and cloud condensation nuclei numbers are often extremely low.
