Unit 3:Clouds, particles and climate
Clouds are composed of liquid water (or ice crystals) and tiny particles inside or outside the droplets. But these particles are ubiquitous in the atmosphere, and not only in the clouds. We will see in this unit that they can affect the visibility.
In the level "basics", interaction between clouds and climate were developed. Let's see here how particles are important players in climate too, for one part by modifying the clouds characteristics, but not only. We will also focus on the global radiation budget of our planet.
