The formation of ice in clouds is one of the least well understood aspects of the planet’s climate system. Special aerosol particles, known as ice-nucleating particles (INPs), are needed to trigger ice formation in cloud droplets, whereas in the absence of INP cloud droplets can supercool to well below -35oC.
