Climate prediction is in the clouds
Clouds are scientifically important for the study of climate change and play a very important role in the environment. There is a need to further examine the structure of warm clouds and their reaction to climate change to facilitate climate prediction. The EU-funded project CloudCT will table an innovative proposal based on data collected by a novel tomography approach. This will improve cloud settling models, prompting increasingly realistic simulations of cloud fields and more accurate climate models. This multidisciplinary approach will test perspectives of remote sensing and mathematical recovery based on a pico-satellite development.
