  • SoMAS Research Examines How Dust Particles in the Air Affect Formation of Ice
    Photo above: Microscope image of droplets, about 50 µm in diameter, that are cooled below the melting point of ice (0 °C). The diameter of a human hair is about 70 µm. Lighter shaded droplets are liquid. Darker shaded droplets formed ice and thus appear darker. Professor Daniel Knopf at the Stony Brook University School […]
