Cloud physics is the study of the physical processes that lead to the formation,
growth and precipitation of atmospheric clouds. Clouds consist of microscopic
droplets of liquid water (warm clouds),...
Water vapor droplets can become cloud droplets when what is reached? Water

When enough droplets of at least a few tenths of a micron form, they become ...
Given sufficient water vapor to reach saturation, clouds can form at the tops of the
