Description

The objectives of the project were:
* To determine the nucleating ability of specific ice nuclei and the initiation and development of ice in mixed phase clouds.
* To determine how aerosol particles control the cloud microphysics and dynamics in mixed phase clouds
* To determine the type and phase partitioning of absorbing material above below and within clouds and the role of this material in ice nucleation.
* To reduce the uncertainty in the contribution of indirect radiative forcing by better understanding of the role of aerosols in the microphysics of mixed phase cloud.
