CSU researcher wins DOE funding to improve modeling of atmospheric ice nucleation

The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded Russel Perkins, a research scientist in CSU’s Department of Atmospheric Science, funding to advance our understanding and modeling of the role that a class of atmospheric aerosols known as ice-nucleating particles play in cloud formation. Perkins and co-investigator Sonia Kreidenweis, a University Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science, will investigate how different aerosols affect cloud properties like ice/water ratio, average droplet size, and other factors.
