Good vibrations lead to molecular revelation

( -- A little luck and the wisdom to recognize what they were seeing helped Rice University researchers solve a molecular conundrum in a way that could be a boon to chemists.

Atmospheric turbulence may promote cloud droplet formation

Clouds form when water vapor in moist packets of air condenses onto atmospheric aerosols, such as particles of dust. The transition from dry particle to liquid water droplet is known as activation. The threshold for activation ...

Air pollution levels depend on drizzle rates

Scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Scripps Institution of Oceanography and international collaborators have shown that an improved representation of drizzle rates leads to more pollution in the ...
