Title A few cold drops falling through a cloud could create a downpour Media name/outlet New Scientist Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 27/09/17 Description Jonathan Crosier at the University of Manchester, UK, says if this is what happens in real clouds, it may be a rare phenomenon.
“I’m not convinced it’s an important process in terms of understanding how 99.9 per cent of the droplets in a cloud are formed,” he says. “However, to really know, detailed simulations are needed in a very wide range of scenarios.”
