Cloud condensation nuclei or CCNs are small particles typically 0.2 µm, or 1/
100th the size of a cloud droplet on which water vapour condenses. Water
Called "cloud condensation nuclei", these water molecule attracting particles are
about 1/100th the size of a cloud droplet upon which water condenses.
Note - nuclei is the plural form of nucleus. These are usually tiny particles in the
air that provide a surface for water vapor to condense onto. Without ...
