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),...

Clouds. A Cloud is a visible assemblage of small water droplets and/or ice ...
water vapor in the air condenses (or deposits) into liquid water droplets (or ice
crystals). ... Once this point is reached, when air parcels rise higher, their
temperature ... released heat can cause the air inside developing clouds to
become warmer .....
Billions of these water droplets together make a cloud. ... High clouds form where
the air is extremely cold and can hold little water vapor.

How do droplets grow and become rain drops? ... Eddy diffusion is much faster
than molecular diffusion, but eddies cannot mix water vapor toward small
droplets. ... After the saturation level (LCL) is reached, condensation begins to
occur on ...
