 Clouds Could Help Ease Global Warming

Wondering how are clouds formed and how does the chemistry of the ocean affect their formation? Is this process affected by climate change? Here is the hint.

Microbiologist William Whitman and marine scientist Mary Ann Moran of the University of Georgia think these are timely questions.

They discovered key bacterial genes that influence sulfur gas flux from seawater, with important implications for understanding the role of ocean bacteria in cloud formation.

"We are now better able to evaluate the impacts of climate change on the process and the implications for cloud manipulation, which has been proposed as a means to mitigate global warming," said Whitman.

The paper has been published in the scientific journal Nature.
