A new periodic table of Chemistry. We Choose the Moon: Pre-launch. UC Science Fair. Clouds: puzzling pieces of climate. Essentially, clouds are visible masses of water droplets (or even crystals), suspended in Earth’s atmosphere.

Clouds: puzzling pieces of climate

To study them, researchers divide them into categories. Thin and wispy clouds are called cirrus clouds. Cotton-puffs, or heaps of cotton-puffs, are cumulus clouds. On a cloudy day, the sky is usually covered by flat, hazy and featureless stratus clouds. Each cloud can be classified as one or a combination of these types of clouds (see diagram below). Clouds are classified into different categories Image adapted from Russell et al. (2007); courtesy of the Institute of Physics Furthermore, clouds are classified according to their altitude into: low-level (up to 2000 m), medium-level (2000-6000 m), and high-level clouds (over 6000 m).

So, why do clouds appear and disappear, and what determines their formation and precipitation? Cloud seeds Formation of clouds by convection (rising air): sunlight heats the ground so that the air above heats up and rises. School experiments at the nanoscale. Dilution and the sense of smell In the following experiment, suitable for ages 8 and above, food colouring is serially diluted, causing the colour and smell to fade gradually.

School experiments at the nanoscale

The colour will fade more quickly that the smell, illustrating that even though our eyes cannot detect the chemical responsible for the colour, it is still present, as verified by the smell. In the same way as we use our eyes to see large things and our nose to smell small things, nanoscientists use special tools to analyse (and manipulate) things at the very small scale: the nanoscale. Atomic force microscopes can feel and move individual atoms, while special surfaces with nanotextures on them can repel water extremely efficiently. Introduction. Home. - Página Principal.
