Forest flavour, particle formation and cloud condensation
Condensation takes place in the atmosphere when cloud droplets form. It is not easy to understand what sort of cloud droplets of which size form under which conditions. Could it be possible that even the smell of the forest has something to do with it? Scientists in Finland can tell us more ...
Condensation in the atmosphere
Evaporation takes up heat, condensation releases heat. Calorific processes take place every day in our environment. They are part of the weather. However condensation of pure water is not possible in the atmosphere. Why not?
Do you understand the process of condensation and changes in states of aggregation taking place in the atmosphere? Think about the role of processes in our environment which have an influence.
