Building a Cloud Chamber for Collaborative Research

NSF MRI: Development of a Turbulent Cloud Chamber NSF Major Research Instrumentation Program, 2010-2013 (Extended to 2015) This effort will develop a laboratory cloud chamber to assess impacts of well-characterized turbulence (generated via Rayleigh-Benard convection) on cloud microphysics and aerosol processing. The cylindrical chamber will have a working volume of 3.14 m^3 and be capable of simulating a full range of
