A new NERC grant has started, aiming to reduce the uncertainty in the estimation of the indirect effect of aerosols on climate. “Aerosol-Cloud Interactions - A Directed Programme to Reduce Uncertainty in Forcing through a Targeted Laboratory and Modelling Programme” is part of a collaborative project lead by the University of Manchester and including the Universities of Leeds, York, Leicester, Cambridge, Oxford, Hertfordshire, Exeter and Bristol. The Bristol component will be to reduce the uncertainty in predicting rates of droplet growth by condensation. Click here for more information.
