Building a comprehensive understanding of ice nuclei sources from the ground up: Establishing the impact of sea spray and agricultural soils

This project will improve our knowledge of the sources of ice-nucleating particles that allow ice crystals to form in the atmosphere. Our research is advancing understanding of how two less-studied but important particle types contribute to determining real-world ice nucleus concentrations, and tackling the grand challenge of predicting ice nucleus concentration from the observed characteristics and sources of atmospheric particles.
Keywords aerosol-cloud interactions, Ice-nucleating particles, primary biological aerosol particles, source estimation and attribution for global climate models
