Ammonia boosting cloud formation


The international team around the CERN CLOUD-Project (Cosmics Leaving Outdoor Droplets) has found evidence that ammonia is boosting cloud formation.

Find the Cloud-Paper in the journal nature, here. Also, be sure to visit this article, where Prof. Dr. Paul Winkler of the Aerosol- and Environmental Physics group of the University of Vienna and Prof. Dr. Armin Hansel from the University of Innsbruck explain their experiments and findings.
