Cloud Comments

Professor Raymond Shaw (Physics), is an author of a commentary published in this week’s issue of the journal “Science.” The topic is the need to better understand cloud processes and how that can be accomplished. The article entitled “Can We Understand Clouds Without Turbulence?” is published in the Perspectives section of the journal. The reference is E. Bodenschatz, S. P. Malinowski, R. A. Shaw, and F. Stratmann Science 19 February 2010: 970-971. The synopsis is “Advances at the interface between atmospheric and turbulence research are helping to elucidate fundamental properties of clouds.”
